Wilmington, Del. – On Thursday, August 5 at 3:00pm Shoes 2 Share International will pick up nearly 4,000 pairs of shoes collected by Calvary Chapel of Philadelphia. The pickup will be at the Village Deli, 1904 Jenkintown Road, Jenkintown, Pa, where the shoes are currently overflowing storage space.


Focus on the Family’s Clubhouse Jr. Magazine Challenge to kids and families nationwide, to collect 2,000 pairs of shoes over the summer, excited first a single child, then a group of moms, and finally the entire congregation at Calvary Chapel of Philadelphia. Through collaborative efforts, the church matched the challenge’s goal and doubled it, collecting nearly 4,000 pairs of shoes on one Sunday. The church joined together to help collect the shoes for Shoes 2 Share to distribute to those in need across the U.S. and in 17 other countries around the globe.


This enormous shoe collection will bring life-changing impact to those whom Shoes 2 Share International serves.


Tim Wampler , co-Founder of Shoes 2 Share, says, “We are so grateful to Pastor Joe Focht, Pastor Jerry Paradise and the whole congregation at Calvary Chapel of Philadelphia for this incredible effort! The shoe drive will bless so many who need them. Calvary went far beyond anyone’s expectations as their entire 10,000 member congregation rose to the occasion and collected almost 4,000 pairs of shoes!”


Tim & Rhonda Wampler , Founders of Shoes 2 Share has been providing for those in need for years. They have spent years building up a network and process that ensures any donated shoes and relief supplies get to countries safely, quickly and most importantly − directly to the people.
