Kicking off this Thursday, the first day of Autumn: *Children's Shoe Drive.*
It has been brought to my attention that many of the families whose homes were flooded, lost their shoes to the street waters. While clothes may have been salvaged and washed, shoes were destroyed by prolonged submergence in water. For families already living modestly, financial priorities are focused on redeeming lost wages, home renovations and transportation. Cute clothes and fly shoes are not high on their lists. Children's feet grow quickly... Last week I dealt with two cases of young children wearing inappropriate footwear (too small and unsanitary) due to not having resources to purchase shoes. Therefore, Circle Sisters 13 has decided to focus our community service this season on providing shoes to families that need a little extra benevolence from their community. We are asking for new and gently used shoes, Girls/Boys and All Sizes.
We will pick-up donations on Sundays during the Fall season (September 22- December 22). Please text or message your available time to meet: Keshia K Boogie Shantae, 713-338-9343. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will confirm via text, email or phone call (if we have questions.)
