Barefoot Sunday

Sunday October 27, 2019       10am-noon

                     Pleasant Valley Church     meeting at 5 Wade Ave.,   Brantford

Two hard truths:

1)  More than 3 Billion people around the world live on less than $2 a day.  Many don’t have shoes.

2)  We have more shoes than we need.  A survey revealed that an average person has 17 pairs of shoes…but only wears three pairs regularly.

One Bold Action:

On Barefoot Sunday, Sunday October 27, 2019 from 10am-noon, Pleasant Valley Church is collecting shoes that will help people in need in our community.  All sizes are needed.

If you are able, leave the pair that you came with, and consider going home barefoot.  This will help us to identify with, if even for a few minutes, the reality that the billions of others around the world face every day.  In case you were wondering, it is NOT illegal to drive barefoot!

The collected shoes will then be passed on to our partners in free clothing distribution.  Your donated shoes will be given out locally to those in need.

Giving guidelines:

·      please don’t give any badly damaged shoes

·      feel free to give more than one pair of shoes

·      We will also be accepting other clothing as well as Foodbank items

·      invite others to give

·      if you can, include a new pair of socks!

·      For more information, please contact the Church Office:  519-752-5336
