The Mountain TOP Mission Team is collecting NEW athletic shoes and workboots for our upcoming trip. We set a goal of 250 pairs!
Women's sizes 6-12
Men's sizes 7- 13
These do not need to be name brand but they do need to be NEW. The county where we are serving is the poorest in TN. A lot of kids share shoes to pass gym class. We can make a difference.
Shoes can be dropped in the marked box in the hallway outside the Sanctuary.
