Shoes for Hope

Aug 23, 2017
8:00 AM - 10:00 PM

Description

Nationally, 1100 college students are lost to suicide every year. The hope is to collect 1100 pairs of shoes to match the number of young adults lost due to suicide.

Donate new and gently used men's, women's and children's shoes. There is a specific need for men's and women's dress shoes as well as men's, women's and children's sneakers. Donations will go to: Fort Wayne Rescue Mission; Charis House; Blue Jacket Clothing Company; Fort Women's Bureau and Cross Border Partners.

Look for the blue barrels labeled "Shoes for Hope" in various buildings around the campus to drop off the shoes.

This event is part of Suicide Prevention Week.
