Buckner's Shoes for Orphan Souls Drive a first in Lubbock

Posted: Updated:

A group of kids in Shallowater met Wednesday to sort out and count the pairs of shoes they collected in the Buckner's Shoes for Orphan Souls Drive. This is the first year the organization has held a drive in the Lubbock area.

According to Buckner Foster Care director Mindy Mcdonald, more than 600 pairs of shoes were collected which will benefit kids both here in the South Plains and world-wide.   

"We're gonna give them immediately to kids in the Lubbock community first and then what's left will be shipped to children across the world." says Mcdonald.

Buckner Foster Care began in 1996 as an outreach of The Bucker Children's Home, which has operated in Lubbock since 1957.

Mcdonald says the Buckner's Shoes organization will deliver the shoes over the summer to children across the globe through missions organizations.
