“Members of this Lewistown congregation have a whole lot of soul–or to be more accurate, soles,” said The Sentinel newspaper, reporting on the 500 pairs of shoes that Maitland Church of the Brethren in Lewistown, Pa., has donated for Soles4Souls. The church members more than doubled their goal to collect 200.

“The new or lightly used shoes were delivered to the already growing pile of shoes at the Pine Glen Church of the Brethren recently to provide relief, help create jobs, and empower people to break the cycle of poverty through the selling of shoes in developing countries,” the report said. “When 25,000 pairs are collected at Pine Glen Church of the Brethren, a truck will pick them up for delivery to Sole4Soles.”
