August, 2012-Serving Hands International’s (SHI) annual shoe program provides footwear to children with families of low income. This year, 25 partners of SHI were preapproved to participate in the program. Claudia Garcia, from Friends of the Poor, an SHI partner and one of the shoe program participants, recently drove a group of children from low income families to the shoe store without telling them in advance where they were headed. As the kids arrived and received their new shoes, huge smiles covered their faces! “The kids will begin the school year with new shoes and feel self-confident,” stated Claudia. The joy and excitement of the children was possible thanks to the support of A-1 Self Storage and generous donors like you!
