Welcome to our Hope Giver fundraising page! With your support we want provide over 500 children with brand new pairs of shoes and a life-changing word of encouragement with Samaritan’s Feet.
Joe and Ashley have worked directly with the Samaritans Feet Charity and have seen the awesome impact a new pair of shoes can have on a child's life. Joe volunteered his time in Houston and helped distributed shoes to children in areas deeply affected by poverty.
Giving a child shoes can alter their life in ways that will forever change them. Without shoes children face dangers due to soil that is contaminated with disease, fungus, lacerations and insect bites that can lead to infection and even death. Shoes can open the door for children to having access to education. In many countries if children do not have shoes they are not allowed to attend school thus, can lead children into child slavery, and or unsafe and inexcusable child labor environments.
Children in the United States also benefit from Samaritans feet. We work with local schools and shelters to provide shoes that fit and that are new. Within schools in the United States, nurses report that SHOES AND SOCKS are in the top 5 items schools need you donate.
Samaritan’s Feet serves and inspires hope in children by providing shoes as the foundation to a spiritual and healthy life resulting in the advancement of education and economic opportunities. Since its founding in 2003, Samaritan’s Feet and its partners have distributed over 6.6 million pairs of shoes in more than 90 countries and 350 U.S. cities.
On November 3, Samaritan's Feet will name their 2018 Person of the Year from among the Hope Giver honorees at their Barefoot Gala, sponsored by Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated.
