No More Used Shoe Pick-up at New Melle Baptist Church

The Shoeman Water Project has notified New Melle Baptist Church that they will no longer be picking up used shoes in New Melle.

The Shoeman Water Project collected used shoes, then sold the shoes overseas to raise funds which then helped supply clean drinking water facilities in needy countries.  Overseas buyers are now only accepting certain types of shoes, and New Melle will no longer be a pick up site.

New Melle Baptist Church would like to thank the entire community for dropping off tons of used shoes over the years, and we offer a heartfelt THANK YOU for your generous support. Our prayers continue for all involved with the Shoeman Water Project and the work they do to help those in need of clean water.
