Last year's Shoes-For- Haiti drive brought in over 700 pairs of shoes. I know that this year we can top that! During a recent mission trip to Haiti I witnessed the devastation and real need in this country. Many of the children are going to school barefoot or in broken plastic flip flops. So let's make a change.
We are looking for "gently used" or new shoes for children ages 5-18. Sizes should rage from a child's size 12 to a man/woman size 10. The best shoes for their needs are sturdy sandals with straps, water shoes, sneakers and Mary Jane's. Black dress shoes are very important considering it is a part of their mandatory school uniform. The climate is warm, so there is no need for boots or fur lined clogs. No high heels or fancy sandals/shoes either. All donations are greatly appreciated.
The drive will run until Friday, March 28, 2014
This is a truly easy and much needed way to serve others. If you have any questions or would like more clarification , please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out our website, http://www.toledokidswhocare.org./
