Church Collects Shoes

Local residents in Rocky Mount, NC are being invited to recycle their gently worn shoes beginning this weekend.

St. Andrews Episcopal Church is teaming up with Soles4Souls to collect gently worn footwear and/or donations for people in need, whether they are victims of a natural disaster or subject to living in extreme poverty.

All shoes can be dropped off at St. Andrews Episcopal Church from 9 a.m. to noon on weekdays. A $1 contribution also is sought for each pair to help with shipping expenses. The shoe drive begins Sunday, with St. Andrews preschool and church families hosting a barefoot event, where participants will leave their shoes at the door as an act of worship and selflessness.

St. Andrews Episcopal Church is located at 301 S Circle Drive in Rocky Mount. For more information, please contact Tara Vester at 252-937-2459 or e-mail her at
