We are getting ready to send shoes and money for shoes to Sole Mission and would sure love for you to be a part. Please bring new shoes, children's or adults to the Women's Ministries table to add to our collection. Check those sale tables at all your favorite shoe stores for clearance or sale items and just see how many new pair of shoes you can get for us to send. Sole Mission has given away many many pair of new shoes for all those who have suffered and lost everything in the tornadoes in Alabama and in Joplin, Missouri.
So do your best to help them recover for Back to School in rural America. If you don't have time to shop, then just bring a check by the Women's Ministries table to contribute and we will get the money to them. This is one way we can help is simply by contributing shoes.
Sole Mission, through Rural Compassion, collects and distributes shoes to children and families throughout rural America. Thousands of children live in poverty in small communities across the country. Many of these children face a daily struggle. No shoes......or shoes with holes in them...... the children patch them with cardboard.....but when it rains the cardboard is no match for water. Other children wear shoes that are too small for them, causing their feet to grow misshapen and their toes crooked. This cause problems throughout life.
On the disaster side, Sole Mission responds to many disasters each year. Often resources and help are located in larger populated areas, making it difficult for rural families to access. Children and parents left with only the clothes they were wearing at the time of the disaster, are provided with new shoes, work boots, and other supplies provided by Rural Compassion.
