Have you ever wondered how you, your family, or your church group can make a big difference in the lives of vulnerable children and families right here in North Texas and perhaps around the world?
By contributing a pair of new tennis shoes or by leading your group, social club, or church group to do a shoe drive, you will bring hope to children and families. A pair of shoes means education for some children; shoes can provide safety; shoes can provide health to children without a pair of shoes to play in. Shoes make a big difference.
