08/20: cityCURRENT Memphis Shoe Distribution with Samaritan’s Feet

benefitting Las Americas

Volunteers are needed for our Samaritan’s Feet Back to School Shoe Distribution with Las Americas on Saturday, August 20, from 8:30 AM-12:00 PM

Event Location: Las Americas Youth Development Center (3097 Knight Road, Memphis, TN 38117)

Join us for a morning of service at our cityCURRENT – Samaritan’s Feet Shoe Distribution, hosted in partnership with Las AmericasSamaritan’s Feet Founder, Manny Ohonme will join us as we serve 300 kids from Las Americas, who’ve already been pre-selected from the nonprofit.

Volunteers are needed in many capacities, including event setup/prep, registration, foot washing, managing shoe inventory, handing out snacks, playing games, and more! We need 100 volunteers, so it’s a perfect opportunity to serve individually or as a team with your co-workers, friends, and family.

For more than ten years, we’ve helped thousands of kids and this event is always a favorite. The goal is to bring a message of hope, love, and compassion to everyone served. Every time we sit across from a child, we not only seek to meet their physical needs with a new pair of shoes, but we ask about their dreams and seek to build relationships here in our community.

Please help us spread the word and make plans to join us for the morning or at least an hour, so we can make a difference together in the city we love. Plus, there will be tacos for volunteers provided by the Taco Nganas food truck!
