Collecting Shoes this Holiday Season

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Tue, Dec 31, 2019 @ 02:47 PM

80040382_10157691957559223_4326102476001378304_oThis holiday season we supported Shoelady.org  (with the help of Rebekah Brewster and Kiwanis Club of Williamsburg) in providing shoes for children in need all over Hampton Roads.

The Shoe Lady Organization started in 2013 when a young boy went to the home of Melissa and Bill Hoffman to play with their son. He arrived in the pouring, freezing rain on a November afternoon barefoot carrying his shoes. When asked why he wasn’t wearing them he said that they were his grandmother’s and they didn’t fit. At that point Melissa started the non profit to find shoes for all children in need. In 2016 Melissa passed away and Bill valiantly picked up her torch. You can help by donating at www.shoelady.org.

Heart for Orphans Fundraiser

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Tue, Dec 31, 2019 @ 02:29 PM

67165847_10157255697959223_8516016473964019712_oWe had a great time at our Potluck with a Purpose raising money for Heart for Orphans, an organization that provides support and stability for teens who have aged out of the orphanage system in Ukrainian.

Heart for Orphans is a charitable organization that provides support and stability for teens who have aged out of the orphanage system. At the young age of 16 with no family support, these vulnerable teens face a life of potential crime, drugs, alcohol, and prostitution. Many end up in prison… or sold by sex traffickers… or die too young. Feelings of abandonment… rejection… and despair is all that they know!
