Buckner Kicks Off Lubbock Community Shoe Drive  Benefiting Shoes for Orphan Souls

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Buckner International in partnership with KCBD for their 5th year invites the Lubbock community to collect new shoes during the month of April to benefit vulnerable children served by Buckner programs in Lubbock and around the world. Since 1958, Buckner has been serving children and families in Lubbock through foster care and adoption as well as through Family Pathways. The shoes collected will benefit children in these programs and around the world.

Businesses, churches, organizations, and schools are invited to join the cause by registering to host a shoe drive or become a drop-off location at www.buckner.org/kcbd

Shoes are foundational to good health and are required for children to attend school in the United States and in many countries around the world.  Buckner serves infants through teenagers in community centers and orphanages in countries such as the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Honduras, Kenya, Mexico, Peru, and the United States. All sizes and types of new shoes are accepted, but the greatest need is for athletic or canvas shoes, sizes Youth 4 to Adult 10. 

The final drop off day for the shoe drive will take place on Saturday, April 29th from 9am – 12pm at First Baptist Church – Global Missions Center.
