SHOE'S OF HOPE SHOE DISTRIBUTION will take place on Saturday, November 12 at the Stanly County Family YMCA. The first 250 individuals to arrive. Volunteers will spend time with each shoe recipient by washing his or her feet and placing a new pair of athletic shoes and socks on them. Our greatest desire is that those few moments of encouragement and a new pair of shoes will act as a reminder that each person is loved. Interested in volunteering for the event? Contact Mandi Rogers for more information.
