Of Souls. And Soles.

“Back to school” shopping has become another expression of our consumer culture, as families spend heavily on the trendiest new clothes, shoes and accessories to go with new school supplies.

But not every family is so lucky … and some must choose between those new shoes and food on the table.

Once a year, we extend an invitation to groups of families who may not have the means to buy new shoes and new school supplies.

A bus will pick up participating families and take them to Meijer in Midland, Bay City or Saginaw.

There they will enjoy pizza, pop and ice cream courtesy of Meijer and a pair of shoes which are provided by Just For Kids.
