Lots of Shoes

On Tuesday morning we went to the Salvation Army in downtown San Jose to serve.  They had hundreds of shoes that had been donated, but without it's pair.  We went through the bags of shoes looking for a right and left shoe that were similar enough that could be a match.  It definitely was an overwhelming task, as we had to get creative near the end with the matching.  But 2 mismatched shoes are better than than no shoes at all for the homeless and poor in this city. After 2 hours of matching shoes together, we put together probably 100 pairs, but there were still hundreds and hundreds of shoes left.  If you ever decide to donate shoes to the Salvation Army, please tie the laces together, so if they get sent overseas, the right and the left don't get separated.
