Christian Family Radio hosting shoe drive

Bowling Green, KY - WCVK (90.7) announced that they will be hosting a shoe drive for Soles4Souls that will last until the end of June. The shoes will be delivered to poverty stricken areas of Sudan in late July.

"Our goal is to have a million pair of shoes shipped to that region by the end of the year," stated founder and CEO of Soles4Soles, Wayne Elsey. "You can see sixty to seventy thousand people with basically nothing in one of the many refugee camps in Sudan. We are putting a pair of shoes on their feet to give them a firm foundation and to let them know that we care about them."

More than 300 million children around the world do not have a single pair of shoes. Yet Americans have more than 1.5 billion pairs of unwanted shoes in their closets. You can make a difference by donating new or gently worn shoes or flip-flops in mens, womens and childrens of all sizes. Participants can drop off their shoes at the CFR Studios in Bowling Green, Lifeway Christian store in Owensboro or Papa John's in Glasgow.
