The Kairos Prison Ministry is hosting a shoe drive fundraiser starting today.
The ministry said the fundraiser runs from June 5 to July 31, and the money is for their semi-annual Kairos walk.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to feed, clothe and house their families.
Kairos Inside will earn funds based on the total weight of donated shoes, and Funds2Orgs will issue a check for the collected shoes.
The fundraiser also helps to keep shoes out of landfills. An estimated 300 million shoes are thrown away each year. It’s a win-win for everyone,
If you would like to donate used and new shoes can call (806) 231-3237.
