Donate shoes at this week's meeting
We will be collecting new and gently worn shoes at this Thursday's meeting, Jan. 10. Any kind of shoe is acceptable!
Soles4Souls is a nonprofit social enterprise that creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes around the world. One person's unwanted shoes can help provide meaningful opportunities that may in developing nations need. 
Thank you all for your support.
