For everyone who dropped their pocket change into the “Quarters 4 Shoes 4 Kids” boxes or who mailed a check, a sincere Thank You. Since 1996 your donations have provided shoes for children in need in our area. There is absolutely no overhead.

We recently had a grandparent bring a sack of quarters to donate and this is the accompany letter:

“Had a family reunion this summer, adults and several older grandchildren (4-10) played a game and the winner won $20.00 in quarters. The tying try was between an 8 year old and a Great Grandpa. Guess who won, Great Grandpa. The 8 year old was disappointed, until Great Grandpa gathered all the kiddos around and told him what he was going to do with the money. They were so excited about the money going to “Shoes 4 Kids”. Glad to share our blessing over the past years.”

Thank you to this retired farmer and many others who donated this year. As shoe prices have risen these past 20+ years, your generosity is appreciated.

Sincerely,

Quarters 4 Shoes 4 Kids
