Children’s Shoe Drive Nov. 17th-Dec.22nd
“Those Shoes” was read at the 3rd of November service and it was around an African American child who lived with his grandmother who desperately wanted the “it” pair of shoes. Grandma tells him that “in this house there is no room for ‘want’, only need.” The child ends up finding the coveted pair of shoes at a thrift store and buying them, despite the too small size. In the end, he generously and reluctantly gives them to another boy in his class whose shoes are held together with duck tape.
In this season of warmth, family and gratitude, the 1st-3rd Grade Religious Education class will be holding a shoe drive based on “Those Shoes.” We invite the entire Fellowship to purchase any size children shoes and bring them to the shoe table in the Core Area. The shoes will be donated to the children of Casas de Luz! The 1st-3rd graders will be writing letters and putting them inside the shoes with the hope of becoming pen pals with other children. The Shoe Drive will be from November 17th-December 22nd.
