First Baptist Church of Oronogo in Missouri Hosting Shoe Drive During March

"Mile in Their Shoes" Drive, First Baptist Church of Oronogo, Missouri

Over three million children and one billion adults are walking this earth without adequate foot coverings.

People have resorted to searching for necessary items to live on such as food or clothing, barefoot, in the landfills.  Some call that their place of employment. Imagine for a moment what it would be like to live the way you do, work where you work, and play as you play day in and day out with inadequate protection on your feet.  Think about all the medical issues that can happen such as cuts, bruises, an infection, frostbite, and burns; you get the point. 

Together, we can help. Soles4Souls is a non-profit organization whose mission is Changing the World – One Pair at a Time™. First Baptist Church of Oronogo will be collaborating with Soles4Souls and the local community to provide shoes to people in need. They will go to those in need in our own communities, as well as, to the rest of the world.

So, let's clean out our closets and donate our gently worn or new shoes at the location(s) below. Any monetary donations will be used to cover shipping and to purchase new shoes.

All sizes are accepted and much appreciated.

Dates: Entire month of March 2009
