08 May Men Receive New Shoes Essential For Their Jobs
DONATION: RED WING SHOES
LIVES IMPACTED: 60
Central Night Shelter aims to combat the growing problem of homelessness in Atlanta, GA. Central Night Shelter is a winter night shelter for approximately 90-100 men. Our organization has been blessed for the past 4 to 5 years with several donations of wonderful shoes from Red Wing. The shoe event has been great for our community. After our fearless leader’s passing last year, we have tried to carry out this ministry which she so strongly promoted.
This time around, we were able to fit 60 men with brand new shoes. Several of our men work for a temp agency and these kind of shoes are essential for the job. Others used the shoes to keep their feet dry in the rainy weather. Many times these men do have jobs, but need to save their checks for a few months so they can afford a deposit for an apartment. The expense of shoes can be a pricey one so this donation has made a big impact on them. The shelter helps them get a good night rest, along with a hot meal and shower. Thank you to Good360 and Red Wing for this wonderful donation.
