GLOW Kids, MPKids, and Impact League learned a lot about third world problems this past Wednesday – and specifically about how it would feel to live day to day without shoes. Did you know that 300 million children around the world are without footwear? Without shoes, children are subject to injuries and diseases that are transmitted through soil. Also, in many countries, children cannot attend school if they do not have shoes.
So, our kids are going to hold a Soles4Souls shoe drive during the months of October and November. Please bring in used shoes of any kind, condition and size. We encourage your children to ask neighbors for shoes and even challenge their classmates at school to bring in shoes. The more shoes we collect, the more lives we can impact!
At Impact League we swapped shoes and did some laps through the halls to see what it is like to have shoes that are too small, too big, and maybe just uncomfortable as we learned about Soles for Souls.
