These children are our future citizens. If we don't take care of them then what type of citizen will they be?
Having been involved with the foster children system since 1997, Wende's heart is to help support the children who end up in this crazy system that is supposed to watch out for the "best interest of the child". They come out of very tough situations to start and then often get passed from house to house to go and live with people they have never met and thrown into new schools with every move. The older children rarely get put into homes with a family. Instead they are shoved into group homes. Look into their eyes and you see all hope is gone.
Why shoes and socks? Well, kids feet grow, they grow fast, they are also hard on their shoes. Unlike used clothing that can be washed and look nice, used shoes are worn down and smelly and often deserve to be thrown in the garbage. After hearing the need for shoes from other foster parents Bless Their Soles came to life.
We thank you for your support and letting the children know that they are so loved that they get a new pair of shoes and new socks!
To donate shoes and socks please call 407-801-8860. All donations are tax deductible. Monetary donations also accepted and will be converted to physical shoes and socks.
