Triangle Therapeutics and Beyond Fitness are Collecting New Shoes for Orphans

Southeast Texas (Beaumont, Orange, Port Arthur and neighboring towns) – A simple pair of children’s shoes may not look powerful, but they can make a big difference in the lives of vulnerable children and orphans around the world.

Triangle Therapeutics and Beyond Fitness is teaming up with Buckner International to ask Southeast Texas residents to collect shoes for children in need. The annual nationwide Shoes for Orphan Souls® shoe drive is seeking to collect more than 200,000 pairs of new shoes and socks in 2013. Since 1999, Buckner has sent more than 2.5 million pairs of new shoes to vulnerable children in 74 countries around the globe, including the United States.

We hope that with the support of area churches, retailers, and civic groups, we can help Buckner reach their goal and make life better for children. An unexpected benefit of donating new shoes is the sense of satisfaction on the part of the person who gives.

Donated items should be for children and teens, and due to customs regulations, shoes and socks need to be brand new. The greatest need is for new athletic shoes, sizes Youth 1-Adult 8. Cash donations are also accepted and will help provide new shoes as well as cover distribution costs.

No donation is too small. Most of the donations to the shoe drive have come from families giving one or two pairs of shoes. Every pair of shoes makes a big difference to the boy or girl who receives them. You can drop shoes off at:
