You may not have realized it but this week is Barefoot Week! This special week is sponsored by Soles4Souls. The U.S. government estimates that 300 million children around the world don't own a single pair of shoes, and yet Americans threw away the same number of shoes into landfills last year alone. Soles4Souls has a simple mission -- to collect new and "gently worn" shoes to donate to victims of natural disasters and those living in extreme poverty. Our church is going to participate in the 2nd Annual Barefoot Sunday this Sunday, June 7th. If you are looking for a way to donate your shoes, you can find a partipating location here.
