Innovative Idea Supports Shoe Program

Halloween at Grace River Church in Orlando, Florida didn’t just involve candy this year, but shoes. Shoes that will help fund life saving water projects all over the world. Grace River Church, in conjunction with 4 local elementary schools, collected a total of 5,570 pairs of shoes!

Grace River’s shoe drive started mid-September and ended with a bang during their Halloween Block Party/Shoe Drive on October 31st. Their efforts will not only help save lives with safe water, but nearly 6,000 pounds of shoes have been kept from the Florida landfills.
We are blessed and honored to partner with our friends from the south to help bring life saving water to those in need.
Elementary schools participating in the shoe drive included:
Moss Park Elementary
Hidden Oaks Elementary
Vista Lakes Elementary
Durance Elementary
