Memorial Park Christian Preschool partners with the overseas relief group, Soles for Jesus, to collect new and gently used shoes that will make a life-changing difference in the life of children and adults in about 30 African countries. These shoes are a blessing to the people and a tool that opens doors for sharing the Gospel. Boxes are located outside of the preschool wing hall door, near the Huston Room doors in the main church building, and in the entryway of the Clayton Center for shoe collection.
Ways you can help:
Sort through your shoes at home and bring in gently used pairs (please rubber band or tie each pair together);
Browse the clearance racks in various stores;
Write a check out to SolesforJesus.org to help defray shipping costs (drop off in the office or offering plate).
Consider your sphere of influence (family/neighborhood/school/work place) and how you can publicize this shoe drive as an extension of what we’re doing here.
Near Valentine’s Day we solicit toilet paper, cereal, peanut butter, and canned goods for either the North Hills Community Outreach Center Food Bank (an MPC mission partner) or The Light House in Southern Bulter County.
We provide hundreds of books for summer programs offered in the urban Pittsburgh area.
