We are collecting "gently used" shoes and sneakers that will be delivered to "Ralph the Shoe Guy" who owns Discount Shoe Repair in downtown Syracuse. Ralph refurbishes the shoes which may involve some polish or replacing the laces or soles. Then he gives the shoes to the Rescue Mission.
Ralph started this ministry 6 years ago and it has grown from 60 pairs the first year to 15,465 pairs last year! Ralph donates his time and supplies however he will accept cash to help defray the cost of the supplies.
Last year Immanuel donated 75 pairs and so far this year we donated 47 pairs. So let's help Ralph and the Rescue Mission with this ministry!
The donation box is in the Narthex. Any questions ask Shelley Dawson Smith.
