The Shoe That Grows

The Shoe That Grows program provides growth-adjustable sandals to children without shoes in parasite-risk areas

Thank you so very much for your wonderful support of this project – we have raised $3,000.00, enough to purchase 200 pairs of these ingenious shoes that grow in size to match the growth of impoverished children’s feet, and protects them from the misery of living with parasitic diseases. Upon receipt of St Mary’s check and order, Because International in Idaho will ship the shoes to Giving Children Hope in Buena Park. The shoes are scheduled for the next container going to Malawi and Botswana around the beginning of February. Thank you very much to Father Mack for his support of this project, to Gary Mangiofico and Helen Meyer for faithfully keeping the 8 o’clock congregation informed, to Dick Swintek, Mary Hill and Claudia Mellin for their ongoing assistance with the accounting. Thank you, most of all, St Mary’s, for your generosity and kindness to those whom you will never meet, but to whom you have reached out with such love and compassion. Bless you. Barbara van Gaasbeek .
