Shoes For Kids 2023 – July 29 from 9 AM-2 PM
Shoes For Kids is a community-based program that has provided children from under served families in Rockwall County with new school shoes, socks, dental hygiene supplies, and free immunization vaccines for the past 18 years.
Over the years, we have grown from serving 170 children to more than 1,400 children per year. Since 2005 we have distributed over 17,000 shoes.
As a part of the community ministries of First United Methodist Church of Rockwall, in partnership with area churches and civic organizations, volunteers distribute the shoes at First United Methodist Church of Rockwall annually on the last Saturday of July.
With your help, many children will be able to go back to school wearing a new pair of shoes . . . for some, their first new pair of shoes ever!
“When you have done it unto the least of these, my brethren, you have done it unto me.” Matthew 25:40
