  Shoe Drive Report

Thanks go to our Shoe Drive Chair Lillie Hall, to her dedicated team, and to each of you, for the hard work shown in collecting 75 bags of shoes -- 25 pairs per bag. That's 1875 pairs of shoes, weighing nearly a ton!  

Extra special thanks are also due to Johnese Bostic and her family for the use of Triumph Church of Jesus, Apostolic, to store our shoes before they were turned over to Funds2Orgs.
