Donate to Barefoot for Haiti at Old St. Mary's Church

Haiti is still hurting and the good people at Old St. Mary's are teaming up with the people at Sole 4 Soul's and their "Barefoot for Haiti" program:

The Old St. Mary's School and Church have partnered with Soles4Souls to help collect new and gently worn shoes for the victims of the Haitian earthquake! Join us and take off your shoes for Haiti! And as part of this powerful movement, clean out your closets and bring the shoes to donate!

In an effort to collect as many shoes as possible, the Old St. Mary's Community is seeking support for the Barefoot4Haiti Campaign from friends and neighbors in the South Loop. Soles4Souls accepts all types of new and gently worn shoes including: athletic, running, dress, sandals, pumps, heels, work boots, cleats, dance and flip flops. Shoes appropriate for the conditions in Haiti will be delivered there. Bring your new or gently used shoes:

LOCATION: Old St. Mary's Catholic Church Foyer (1500 S. Michigan Ave.) Parking north of the church.

DATE: Saturday, April 17th

TIME: 10 AM -4 PM

DONATIONS: If your shoes have laces, please tie the shoes together with the laces. If not, please secure the shoes together with a rubber band. If gently used shoes are donated, please ensure they are washed and/or otherwise clean.

Also, we will be collecting shoes at each Mass on April 17th and 18th .

Less victims of an earthquake than victims of shoddy architecture and corrupt politics.

Maybe they need some TIF money to build a festival market.

I have a new pair a size too small for me that I'll be donating.

I just took a taxi down there with a trash bag full of shoes. The church was completely locked up. I left a trash bag full of shoes at the door.
