The Shoes for Orphan Souls™ program at Buckner International began running low on donations last spring, and it is forcing the delays of shipments to children in need around the world. 

"We are asking the good citizens of Lubbock to help Buckner replenish the shoe supply", said Denese Thetford, with Buckner International.  "The remaining need for 2011 is more than 80,000 pairs of shoes, and citizens can drop off shoes or donate money to help fill that need."

Buckner International, a Dallas-based ministry has set a goal of delivering 150,000 pairs of shoes throughout the world this year. 

"It is hard to imagine a child living without shoes," said Mike McDougal, President of McDougal Companies.  "We are encouraging our staff and residents to join the Lubbock community in this campaign to drop off donations of shoes at any of our properties around the City."
