Goals for our 2017 School Shoes for Kids Drive:
We are trusting God to gather 1,200+ pairs of shoes and socks through in-kind donations and financial gifts to serve 1,000 children.
  • In-Kind Goal: 600 Pairs of great shoes and socks.
  • Financial Goal: $8,500.00 to purchase shoes and socks and provide the distribution event.
We try to raise more shoes than the number of children expected so that each child has a choice when they are fitted for shoes. Any remaining shoes are distributed to children at the Center after the event.


Use these flyers to promote your own shoe collection events!

Consider VBS, a Sunday morning blitz, garage sale outreach,

a campaign at work, or family vacation shoe competition!
