March 15th is known as National Shoe the World Day. The day strives to raise awareness about the great number of kids, teens, and adults who don’t have anything to wear on their feet.
Executive Director at Christians in Action, Diane Alcala, says that she’s seen “individuals come in with their shoes taped up in that yellow caution tape that they found out on the streets.”
This national day encourages people around the globe to donate towards fixing the issue.
Nonprofits like Christians In Action are perfect resources that offer the public a channel to donate.
Christians In Action partners with organizations like Child Protection Services, Shannon, and the Women’s Shelter to get donations distributed.
Anyone wanting to donate within the Concho Valley can bring shoes, clothes, or monetary donations to nonprofits, like Christians In Action or Rust Street Ministries.
Additionally, Soles4Souls.org is a great resource to donate an old pair of sneakers online.
