Hard Working Men Get New Shoes

Part of our reason to visit El Salvador was to distribute shoes to various groups. These men worked long hours, helping build the new senior center where we were staying. Their work boots had holes and their sneakers were ripped. They were thrilled to get the new Red Wing steel toed work boots we brought along. Since they get paid $5.00 a day, these shoes were a luxury they could never afford. Every day when they came to work, they proudly showed us there new shoes. Except for one guy who said he didn’t want to get his boots dirty so he was “saving” them.
