No Matter Who You Are Or Where You Are

On Life's Journey, You Are Welcome Here!

 

BE A SNEAKER SEEKER!


What? St. Luke’s is raising money and/or NEW tennis shoes for Tabitha’s Closet. (Shoes should be youth size 6—men’s size 15)


Why? During the 2018-19 school year, Tabitha’s Closet gave out 1,500 pairs of new tennis shoes to kids in the Independence School District. They had a contract through Payless Shoes for $10/pair but that ended when the company went out of business. Now, shoes will cost even more.


Goal? $5,611 Why this goal? An Instagram account called “Preacher N Sneakers” started posting pictures of trendy preachers, their sneakers, and a price tag for the shoes. A South Carolina pastor was shown in a pair of Nike Air Yeezy 2 Red October high-tops —which come with a price tag of $5,611/pair.
