Go Barefoot - Sunday, July 28th! Or Go barefoot any Sunday in July!
Churches are invited to join us for National Barefoot Week and go barefoot on Barefoot Sunday. Donate and collect shoes to help Soles4Souls provide needed footwear to people in need around the globe. Imagine the dangers of navigating through trecherous terain or sewage strewn streets without a pair of shoes.
What is Barefoot Week?
Barefoot Week is a weeklong series of events encourages public participation in one of the hundreds of concurrent shoe drives, fun runs & walkathons, retail trade-in events, concerts, festivals and more.
What is Barefoot Sunday?
As a part of Barefoot Week, Barefoot Sunday is design to encourage religious organizations to get involved by leaving their shoes at the alter inconjunction with a church wide shoe collection. Barefoot Sunday helps encourage churches around the country to take off their shoes and go barefoot to raise awareness for the individuals worldwide who do not own a single pair of shoes. This summer, more than 20,000 churches will be asked to join in and get involved by taking off their shoes for one Sunday. As part of this powerful movement, congregants can bring their new or gently worn shoes to church or donate funds to Soles4Souls to help put shoes on the feet on the 300 million children around the world who are barefoot.

It's easy to participate. Just sign-up right here and our staff will send you collection boxes, brochures, a banner and donation cards for your event. Then head to the resources area and download all the materials you need for your event. We have everything you need for a successful event!
