Shoe Collection - Extended!!! We need more shoes in order for the company to pick ours up.. Do you have any gently used shoes you no longer wear and need to clean out that closet? Please being them to the church to the collection area. We will be bagging them and sending them to an organization that trains people to repair them and sell them as a start-up business to provide them the ability to support their families. This way we can walk in their shoes as they walk in ours. You can leave your shoes on the bench next to the front door. Thanks for your help!!!
