West Texans donate 3,700 shoes for Buckner shoe drive

Buckner International's Shoes for Orphan Souls wrapped up their shoe drive on Saturday.

Shoes for Orphan Souls is the largest humanitarian aid project of Buckner International, a global Christian ministry with a location right here in Lubbock. They are dedicated to making life better for orphans, vulnerable children and families.

Organizers of the local shoe drive tell us they are going to be able to serve around 200 children at Buckner's Foster Care and after-school program, as well as children in Guatemala who are aided by Buckner.

West Texans donated more than 3,700 pairs of shoes and around 500 pairs of socks.
