Back-to-School Shoe Drive
For a couple of years now, Faith has been in relationship with Freedom Place...a ministry that works with girls coming out of sex trafficking. This ministry is part of Arrow Child and Family Ministries that is located here in the Spring area. Arrow works with vulnerable children and families in the areas of children welfare, educational services and foster care. One great need that they have as the school year approaches is for new tennis shoes. Most of the need is for boys and men's tennis shoes, ranging in sizes from 5 toddler to a men's 13. The most popular sizes are boys 4 to 9. And some girls tennis shoes are needed from a 5 toddler to girls 3. We are hoping to have at least 120 pairs of shoes to give to them by July 20.
As scripture says: "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech, but with actions and in truth." It goes hand in hand with our reminder on Sunday that "they'll know we are Christians by our love."
The Distribution event is scheduled for Saturday, August 3 and volunteers will also be needed for that event. You can start to bring your shoes as early as this Sunday to the office area. We will be reminding you along the way, but if you know you would like to volunteer on August 3, just give us your name(s) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
