My family and I would like to thank everyone who donated shoes and joined us in our effort to support Redemptive Work at Parker Lane United Methodist Church! Our UUMC family helped collect about 16 bags of shoes and that is quite a number since each bag contained 25 pairs!
Our children were involved in the entire process and it was really great to see them interacting with our church community. Both of them were very proud when I told them that our delivery of shoes put the total number of bags over 100!
According to Mindy at Parker Lane Methodist Church, all of the Methodist churches involved brought in about 136 bags of shoes! Mindy let us know Wednesday that the shoes collected by Austin Methodist churches equaled, “….around $10 per bag or $1360 for Redemptive Work’s local mission.”
Again, thanks to everyone who donated shoes to raise funds for an incredible organization. Please take some time to visit the website for Redemptive Work where you can donate monetarily and help make sustainable living a possibility for traditionally unemployable persons.
