Catholic Charities receive Shoes

When Soles4Souls called Catholic Charities in New Orleans and offered 68,000 pairs of flip flops, it was not easy for them to picture the scope of that many shoes. Luckily, Second Harvest Food Bank offered their warehouse for storage, and helped them to distribute the shoes to those who needed them.

Elsey and a representative from KIDS (Kids in Distressed Situations) visited St. John the Baptist Head Start Center to personally give out some of the flip flops to the children.

"The children went crazy over the new sandals," said Gloria Cabrera, Director of Head Start. "They love unexpected gifts - it was like they had gotten a new toy."
