Get Ready for the Thanks4Giving
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Bethany Lutheran Church is "sole searching." It is estimated that 1.5 billion shoes lay idle in American closets. For countless people who go without them, navigating the ground they walk on barefoot is treacherous. We can touch the lives of thousands by cleaning out our closets and helping to harvest a quarter million pairs of shoes in this charitable Thanks4Giving campaign.
On November 24, Thanksgiving Eve, you are invited to take part in this program to make a change. We will be collecting new and gently worn shoes for the shoe charity, Soles4Souls to distribute to those in need. Please bring your shoes in to donate in a spirit of love and gratitude. We can make a difference, one pair at a time. Our Thanksgiving Eve Service begins at 7:00 p.m. Donations can be dropped off at Bethany Lutheran Church beginning on Sunday, November 14.
Bethany Lutheran Church is located at 4500 East Hampden Avenue, Cherry Hills Village (80113). For more information, please call the church office at 303-758-2820, visit the church website or the event website.
