PIQUA — Piqua Kiwanis Club recently partnered with Missions in Motion for the Shoes for H.O.P.E. service project. Club members, along with local businesses and sponsored youth, collected a total of 163 bags of shoes to support those less fortunate in Third World countries.
The shoes were taken to Cleveland, where they were shipped to Miami, then sent to Haiti, providing 4,075 people with shoes.
“The support of our sponsored youth groups (K-Kids, Builders Club and Key Club), Balance Yoga and Greene Street Church will make a difference in the lives of many individuals,” said Kelly Meckstroth and Niki Watson, Kiwanis Club co-chairpersons of the project.
“We appreciate the time and donations of individuals who have made this a very successful project for our Kiwanis Club.”
