We recently brought our April Shoe Drive to close. Collecting shoes is one thing, but processing them all is quite another. That was our project for Wednesday this week. We had been stockpiling the bags of shoes as they were coming in throughout the drive. (The garage was full.) Early this morning, we packed bag after bag into the back of the pickup and began the journey to Share Your Soles. (The bags were stacked so high, I’m surprised we didn’t lose any along the way.)

At Share Your Soles we received a warm welcome as always and got to work processing our shoes. We unloaded them all and began the count and sort. Four hours of hard labor later, we’re happy to report that we collected 551 pairs of shoes bound for those in need across the globe. Great work to everyone who contributed to this effort. Thank you so much.
