Firelands Presbyterian Church is collecting shoes, along with First English Lutheran Church of Mansfield, for a mission in Malawi in Southeastern Africa. The shoes will be recycled and the money will be donated to the Malawi Orphan Care Project. The shoe money will help purchase backpack water bags for men and women to carry water from their well to their homes.
All types of shoes can be donated: dress, athletic, high heels, boots, sandals, worn out, soiled, etc. Donations will be accepted from now until Sept. 29 at Firelands Church. The container is outside the west doors under the portico. For more information please call the church office at 419-734-6211.
Firelands Presbyterian Church is located at 2626 East Harbor Road (1/2 mile west of Wal-Mart). www.firelandschurch.org.
