During the month of February (2/1 thru 2/21), Healthy Notions, in partnership Family Outreach Ministries International is having a Used Shoe Drive to benefit children in rural Haiti and the Dominican Republic who don’t have shoes.
Without shoes, these children are not allowed to attend school and receive a proper education. By giving used shoes to these boys and girls, not only are they afforded the opportunity to go to school, but the kids can also maintain their health by protecting their feet from cuts, bruises, and life-threatening diseases and illnesses which can be contracted through the feet.
If you’d like to be a part of the “Show Love with Your Soles” Used Shoe Drive, contact Kim Whitaker @ 678.895.6843 or email us at [email protected]. We need volunteers to collect donations leading up to the event on 2/21 and volunteers to donate a few minutes of their time at the final event on 2/21 to help collect donations that will be dropped off.
If you need a collection barrel on site, we can provide that for you. The final event will be held on Saturday 2/21 from 9am to 4pm. We will collect used shoes at Kroger Grocery Store at the Rivermont Station Shopping Ctr., 8465 Holcomb Bridge Road, Alpharetta GA 30022 (Intersection of Barnwell and Holcomb Bridge Rd)
***DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE. ALL SHOES WILL GO TO CHILDREN IN HAITI AND DOMINICAN REPUBLIC WITHOUT SHOES! ***
