Within Buckner we have Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls. It is WAY more than just giving shoes to individuals…but I won’t go into that! I wanted to let my Houston and Dallas friends (or anyone that wants to send me shoes) know about this opportunity!
Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls is having a community wide shoe drives in Dallas and Houston. Our goal is to engage each community in a large scale shoe collection that will benefit children here in Dallas as well as through Buckner programs across the state and around the world. Please engage any contacts you have at churches, businesses, or organizations in the area who may be interested in participating in the shoe drive. The collection kicks off this weekend with Barefoot in the Park, a free concert in Arlington featuring MIKESCHAIR, a Christian band that supports Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls. Old Navy and select Payless stores are partnering with us to serve as drop off locations in Dallas. KCBI will be promoting the shoe collection throughout August and encouraging listeners to take shoes to participating drop off locations in the community. If your church is interested in joining the effort, please register online at buckner.org/shoes under the “Host a Drive” tab at the top of the page. Brochures, posters, and a DVD will be provided to all registered shoe drive hosts in order to spread the word about the collection. Each of the drop off locations will soon be listed in the Drop Off Locations section of the website. Please let me know if you have any questions about the Dallas drive. For questions regarding the Houston drive, please contact Molly Cash at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-939-7184. Thank you for your support and for everything that you do to serve children and families through Buckner ministries locally and around the world!
