Fort Walton Beach Shoe Drive a Success!!

Our experience with Soles4Souls has been overwhelming! The Fort Walton Beach High School Beta Club partnered with Mary Esther United Methodist Church and a local shoe store, Ron's Hush Puppies Shoes. We have collected around one thousand (1000) pairs of shoes! The response to the shoe drive was fantastic. We had Soles4Souls donation boxes and banners at all locations during the month of December.

The support was such a blessing and we know that many lives will be blessed due to such generosity. The professionalism of the staff at Soles4Souls made the community outreach so easy. A special thanks to all of the students and teachers at Fort Walton Beach High School, members of Mary Esther United Methodist Church and the staff and customers at Ron's Hush Puppies Shoes. It is so great to see the cooperation of so many to make a success of the shoe drive for Soles4Souls.
