Hope Lutheran Church was again involved in collecting shoes for KIDS IN NEED this year. The campaign ran from June 21 through the end of August. Those who benefitted from this program are the children in the Charlotte County Public School system.
Dear Shoe Family - Every year I am so happy to tell you about the blessings we have received, however this year it seems even more special. We raised more monetary donations than in any year past; we actually have some monies remaining for our next delivery in Sept. or October. We reached our goal of 5,000 new pairs of sneakers, as per the requests from local schools. (Actually we collected 5300 pairs!) All shoes have been delivered and the staff were so very appreciative. Together we are fulfilling the mission of providing new shoes to our local families as they begin the new school year.
The students in Charlotte County School system have angels (YOU) that will always be in their hearts. They may never know your names, however they know that neighbors help neighbors. They know what it is to feel loved and to be blessed by your generosity. May your days be richly blessed! Thank you so much for all of your kindness & generosity towards the Kiwanis Shoes for Kids Project from its inception 11 years ago.
