NORTH FORK – Once again, the folks at Hillside Baptist Church are joyfully preparing for one of their favorite yearly events – the 6th Annual Shoe Giveaway on Saturday, Oct. 11, from 9 a.m. – noon.
A pair of new shoes will be given free of charge to any student pre-kindergarten to 12th grade living in the North Fork, O’Neals and Wishon communities.
“Our church has given away over 1,500 pairs of shoes in the last 5 years and we hope to reach more students this year,” says pastor’s wife Sarah Crotinger. “This event is a wonderful opportunity to help so many in need in our wonderful community.”
Members and friends of Hillside Baptist Church give generously every year to provide for children who might not otherwise be able to have a decent pair of shoes for the winter.
Pastor Steve fits each child individually on the day of the shoe giveaway.
Steve and Sarah invite local children to Hillside Baptist Church to be presented with not only a new pair of shoes, but also a lot of love.
As Sarah said before last year’s event, “We have all sizes. God knows exactly who is coming to us and I trust that He will guide me to the exact shoes that are needed. He has not failed yet!”
