In Jacob’s Shoes

Our October’s Non-Profit Spotlight will be In Jacob’s Shoes. We are asking everyone to bring new packages of kids’ socks (ages 0-18) to donate. In Jacob’s Shoes will be there to accept your donations.

From their website:

Sadly, there are children in South Florida living in poverty who have truancy issues or are teased because their shoes are old, dirty or torn. There are children in our schools who are wearing shoes that do not fit or have soles that are detached or missing. Some are removed from their homes because of abuse or neglect and are then taken to a shelter to be “processed,” with little clothing and few personal belongings. Many will not get a new pair of shoes for back-to-school or will not be able to play sports because they do not have the right pair of shoes. It is difficult to believe that these tragic scenarios exist today, but for the nearly 20% of children in South Florida who live in poverty and the thousands more who live in foster care, some of these stories are only too familiar.

Since 2009, In Jacob’s Shoes® has been addressing these issues and has provided over 192,374 pairs of new and refurbished shoes, 34,049 pairs of socks, and 10,172 backpacks complete with school supplies for children in need living in Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade Counties. These children live in poverty, are homeless, or live in shelters. Some live in foster care or have “aged-out” of foster care. All are in need.

Let’s work together to help make a difference.

We look forward to seeing you at our next event on Tuesday, October 18, 2022 at Dangerous Minds Brewing Co. We will have live, acoustic music entertainment by Mark with Ocean Blue Band Florida, food + drink specials and local artisans and business owners selling their goods.
