Donate your shoes to The Gulu Project

My sweet friend, Amy, started Gulu Project, Inc. After a couple medical mission trips to the area, they bought some land near the hospital and are creating an outpatient center and long term care village for patients that can no longer stay in the hospital. I encourage you to check out their Facebook page to learn more- it's incredible what they are building literally from the ground up! An endeavor like this requires A LOT of fundraising. The next phase of the project is a nursing and therapy center, which will cost around $8000. They are collecting shoes (new and gently used, any kind will do) for a fundraiser. From now - August 15th, Run 816 is a drop off location for the fundraiser. 2500 pair will get them $1000, and their goal is 5000 pair. So.... clean out your closet and bring me what you got! Thank you!

Check back often- more events will be added!
