We also want to provide an update to a big project that took place last summer.  Many of you participated in the Great Shoe Donation by donating shoes and by volunteering to sort and pack shoes.  These shoes went to micro-businesses around the world and will help put countless people to work.

We are thrilled to announce that Mission Central has already processed and shipped 27,700 pairs of shoes and has 5,500 pairs being prepped for shipment, for a total of 33,200 pairs of shoes!  As a result, Mission Central has received just over $11,300 in processing fees!!

It is hard to express just how grateful we are to the donors from across our Conference, the Mission Central HUB system and all of the volunteer shoe processors…we can’t thank you enough!!
