Volunteer Spotlight — Marcella Davis

ShoesWaterStep is so proud to have some of the best and most devoted volunteers around. Today, we’d like to take the time to appreciate one in particular. Marcella Davis, an 84-year-old resident at the Christian Care Community here in Louisville, is holding a city-wide shoe drive, with the goal of collecting 10,000 pairs of shoes by October 5th, to help people around the world obtain access to clean, safe water.
Marcella came to know WaterStep during the Mayor’s Give-a-Day Week in the spring and decided that collecting shoes was something she could do to help bring someone safe water that needed it. What Marcella is doing is the epitome of our vision — grassroots support from everyday people looking to make a massive difference in the world. We cannot thank her enough for her enthusiasm and drive, and we hope everyone can pitch in to help her reach her goal of collecting 10,000 pairs of shoes by October 5th. Any amount of shoes you can donate will help make a difference.
Her shoe collection drive is being held on October 5th from 9 AM to 2 PM. Please bring any new or used shoes you have to the WaterStep office at 625 Myrtle Street Louisville, KY 40208 or the Christian Care Community campus. Additionally, any shoes donated during the CQ Jam for WaterStep concert at the Captain’s Quarters Grille in Prospect on October 5th will also go towards Marcella’s goal. Thanks to donations and volunteers like Marcella, we are stepping closer to our goal of a world where everyone has access to safe water.
