10/14: cityCURRENT Non-Profit Volunteer Opportunity: Samaritan’s Feet Shoe Distribution

Join us for a morning of service at cityCURRENT’s Samaritan’s Feet shoe distribution in partnership with Nashville Inner City Ministry! This event is always a favorite, and we’ll be serving hundreds of kids from Inner City Ministry, who’ve been selected based on their need.

We need volunteers in many capacities like event prep, registration, and greeting, foot washing, event logistics, handing out snacks, playing games with kids and more!

The goal of this event 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 and socks, but we spend quality time with them asking about their dreams and their lives and seek to build relationships.



  • 8:00 AM    Volunteers arrive for training and job assignments.
  • 8:00-9:00 AM:   Event Prep and Set-up (shoe sorting, wash station set up, snack table set up, game set up, etc.)
  • 9:00-9:30 AM:   Short Program to share the Samaritan’s Feet story and equip volunteers to interact with the kids
  • 9:30-11:30 AM:   Foot Washing (volunteers are needed to be washers, we’ll also need other volunteers to help run check-in, monitor the shoes, help with fittings, change out the water, play games with kids, and more)

If you can participate in any capacity, please register and come whenever is best for you. There are no time requirements so you can help for any window of time between 8:00-11:30 AM. Foot washing is for adults (18+), but we have many activities for volunteers under 18. An adult must accompany all volunteers under 16. This is a fun and impactful way for you and your team, family, and friends to make a difference and give back to your community so please feel free to share this invitation with anyone who you think might be interested. We hope you will join us!


What should I wear? Plan to wear comfortable clothing that you can move around in – jeans, slacks, fingertip-length shorts, and sneakers.  If you are serving as part of an organization, company, church, etc., feel free to represent your group by wearing a T-shirt bearing your group’s logo.

Is there an age limit to serve?  We love it when families serve together!  Parents/guardians will be asked to sign a release form (available at the event) for children under 18.  Generally, children under 13 prefer to serve alongside their parent.  Older kids like to choose their own job.

Thank you again for choosing to spend your time joining Samaritan’s Feet in serving others, we couldn’t impact the community without you!
