Sneakers with Soul
The mission of Sneakers with Soul is to ensure that one day no child will go back to school without a new pair of shoes. Since Sneakers with Soul began its mission in 2010, over 15,000 pairs of new sneakers and athletic footwear have been donated to underprivileged kids in the greater St. Louis area. In addition to the donations of new shoes, the Sneakers with Soul program is positively impacting members of the greater St. Louis community. It brings people face-to-face in relational mission work to make a difference in the lives of those receiving the new shoes. It also positively impacts the lives of those contributing dollars and new shoes and those volunteering to help kids in need. In 2018, we collected 1,150 shoes!
We continue to press forward with this mission and ask that you GIVE generously to support the children and youth that are the recipients of the new sneakers.
Sizes can vary from kindergarten thru 12th grade, with a special need for women sizes from 6 to 9.5 and for men’s sizes 7 to 10.5.
Please drop off your donations of new sneakers/athletic shoes during normal business hours, or any church service, beginning in July and ending the first week of August. For 2019, we will collect shoes between July 6th and August 8th. Our address is 129 Woods Mill Rd., Manchester, MO 63011; email us with questions.
Want to help receive and organize all of the sneaker donations? When sneaker donations are received, volunteers zip-tie the shoes and sort them by size. Volunteering is easy and a great way to help this ministry. No heavy lifting is required.
Want to make a connection with the children/youth who receive the shoes? Sign-up on the Kingdom House site to assist with our distribution event at Peabody Elementary School on August 10th, 2019!
