Jul 28, 2017 04:59PM ● Published by Melanie Heisinger

Samaritan's Feet is an organization that donates shoes to those in need. 

This year in Concord, NC will mark the 6th Annual Back-to-School Distribution. Samaritan's Feet hopes to donate 500 pairs of shoes, on top of other school supplies such as backpacks, pencils, and more. In order to reach this goal, $9,000 needs to be raised. 

This organization has paired with Cabarrus county since 2012, ultimately aiming to provide supplies and shoes for youth in the area before school is in session. 

If you would are interested in making a donation, checks may be made payable to Epworth United Methodist Church, Inc. and sent to Epworth UMC Inc., C/O Teresa Gray, 1030 Burrage Road, NE Concord, NC 28025.

Contact Teresa Gray, director of family ministries, Epworth UMC at 704-786-6183 or epworthchildren@ctc.net to learn more.
