about
I started in 2016 when my daughter who by then was living in Africa refused to recieve shoes as her Christmas present and instead asked me to donate them to the homeless in my area. I went to my closet and then to my job and asked my co-workers for shoes. In 3 months we collected 1500 pairs of shoes, which we donated to the less fortunate and homeless in our area.  The next year we continued with the collection and numbers increased to thousands of shoes. Right now we have a warehouse in Freeland which was also donated to us. I grew up in Africa, in poverty,after the loss of my parents to Aids.  My background is the foundation of my work today. I know what it is not to have a roof, food or shoes on your feet.  In the last 4 months we have managed to help 3 homeless people get apartments and jobs. We have  helped 3 others to renew their  IDs so that they can get jobs. We also provide them with resourceful info such as AA meetings, shelters and most lmportantly build a relationship with them.
