“Shoe Away Hunger” is club’s newest service project

Rogers Rotary President Floyd Ingersoll (far left) is spearheading a shoe collection in support of Shoe Away Hunger.  Club members gathered around the overflowing gaylord box of new and gently used shoes that has already been donated at the CROSS Services location (12915 Weinand Circle in Rogers).

Other drop-off sites are available. Contact Rotarian Dave Christian (612-859-5847) to schedule a delivery. The club welcomes your slightly used shoes, work boots, flip flops, winter boots and kids’ shoes. Please bind each shoe securely with its mate!

Shoe Away Hunger sells shoes for $5/pair — with $5 enough to feed two people for a week through their program. Thank you for helping support this valuable service.
