Give Hope and New Shoes to Children and Seniors in Columbus
Samaritan’s Feet International is excited to announce we will be bringing Hope through the gift of shoes to the Columbus community through our One City Columbus: Destination for Impact Event to be held in 2023 in Columbus, OH.
The goal for this year’s event is to fund and distribute new shoes to 4,000 children and seniors in Columbus. Not only will this exciting event focus on giving new shoes and a message of hope, but also on bringing neighbors, religious leaders, community influencers, and public service personnel together to inspire empathy and unity.
Samaritan’s Feet is a non-profit organization that serves and inspires hope in people 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.
