Jewish Family Services

People lined up waiting to get shoes

Jewish Family Services runs a weekly food distribution in downtown San Diego. We set up an “outdoor shoe bazaar” and invited clients to try on new shoes after picking up their allocated food supply. One man with diabetes told us “I’ve had these shoes for seven years because I couldn’t afford another pair.” He was thrilled with the new shoes Allan found for him. We met many people struggling to get by who thanked us over and over for the new shoes.
