Give New Shoes to Students in Louisiana

Bossier Parish Community College has teamed up with non-profit Samaritan’s Feet to provide students in the Bossier City, LA area with a new pair of shoes. They will be hosting two “barefoot” Baseball games and a “barefoot” Men’s Basketball game to help raise funds, in addition to hosting a shoe drive.

A donation of just $25 will give a student a new pair of shoes, along with a message of encouragement to follow their dreams.

Your gifts will help provide shoes at a Shoe Distributions at an elementary school. A Shoe Distribution is an event where volunteers will serve students one-on-one by giving them a new pair of shoes and encouraging them to believe in their dreams.

About Samaritan's Feet

Samaritan’s Feet is a non-profit organization that serves and inspires hope in children by providing shoes as the foundation to a spiritual and healthy life resulting in the advancement of education and economic opportunities. Over 30 years ago, a boy in Nigeria, Manny Ohonme, received his first pair of shoes at the age of nine. That simple gifted prompted him to play basketball and follow his dreams, ultimately earning him a college basketball scholarship in the United States. A pair of shoes changed his life. So in 2003, Manny and his wife Tracie, started Samaritan’s Feet with a goal of giving hope through the gift of shoes.
