Our middle school youth are cutting out patterns for shoes from old blue jeans to be sent to Uganda as part of the SoleHope Project. Cobblers and tailors from Uganda will be paid to put the shoes together. The shoes help prevent Ugandans from contracting jiggers which is a crippling parasite.
Thank you to everyone who donated old jeans for this important serve project.
