A not-so-funny thing happens at school when your shoes don’t fit, or they are falling apart, or they used to belong to someone else. Suddenly all you can think of are your feet. "My shoes are so tight; I’ll have to take them off. What if my shoe falls apart playing at recess? What if someone teases me about wearing holey, smelly shoes?"
New shoes provide dignity, hope, pride and self-esteem
The First UMC San Diego "Shoes That Fit Change Drive" helps provide new shoes to students in need at several San Diego area elementary schools where volunteers delivered shoes to Adams, Burbank, Central, Cherokee Pt., Porter, Rosa Parks, and Rowan last Fall and this Spring. Past contribution campaigns have provided shoes to more than 3,000 disadvantaged students, helping to change children's lives.
We want to be ready for September and the new school year.
Please bring your change (or bills and checks) to the Shoes That Fit table on the patio before or after the 9 AM service on 8/22 or 8/29. You can also donate online here
