Shoes Handed Out in Jamaica

Here is a touching letter we received from a member of the Miami-Dade Kiwanis Club who was present during a recent shoe giveaway in Jamaica:

“Of the numerous projects undertaken during the Mission, the shoe distribution was the most touching. The look on the faces of children as they tried on their shoes and the glee in their eyes as they held their new pair of shoes close to their bodies left an indelible mark. These images will stay with us forever.

Many of the people who came to us had no shoes or badly worn shoes. Although we were able to help some individuals, we barely scratched the surface. The dire need for shoes has opened our hearts to respond in a more meaningful way in future Missions. Due to the generosity of our sponsors Soles4Souls and Seafreight Lines, we were able to change the lives of the people of Jamaica.”
