St James Emmaus Ministry

Shoe Collection

Each year, Emmaus Ministry distributes 250 to 300 pairs of shoes to men, women and children in need. The homeless are constantly on their feet, walking miles each day in all types of weather, therefore, their shoes wear out quickly. Needless to say, their ability to have proper fitting shoes is also unlikely. Emmaus Ministry distributes new sneakers and boots on request to provide protection, stability and warmth to their feet. Many parishes and organizations have conducted shoe collections on behalf of Emmaus Ministry as well as making monetary donations for their purchase.
