Join cityCURRENT, St. George's Independent School, and Serve901/Choose901 at Living Hope in Midtown, Memphis to serve 350 youth in the community at our annual Samaritan's Feet shoe distribution and fun/wellness event! We'll be providing kids with new socks, shoes, and A LOT of love, hugs, and hope!
Our good friend and founder of Samaritan's Feet International, Dr. Manny Ohonme, will be joining us for the event, as well. Manny will be sharing his inspirational story of growing up in Africa where poverty is widespread and shoes are a luxury, and how the gift of a new pair of shoes from a US aide worker completely changed his life. Now Manny and his wife lead a global organization that has provided more then 7 million shoes to those in need. There's much more to the story and so, we can't wait for you to join us and to hear it straight from Manny himself!
Over the years, we've worked with many hundreds of volunteers and been able to bless more than 3,500 kids here in Memphis, thus far. This year's event will feature many community partners and nonprofit organizations. Volunteers are needed in many different ways. This is always one of our most favorite annual events and experiences, so you're in for a treat. Please review the opportunities, sign up to volunteer, and share with your friends, family, and colleagues.
Volunteers may sign up for multiple shifts. However, please make sure you only sign up for one shift per timeframe.
