Allan visited the Salzbacher Center, Northeast Florida’s only provider of comprehensive services for homeless men, women and children.They are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and serve nutritious meals and offer safe shelter. In fact they serve 1,300 meals a day! But that is just the beginning. They also provide outstanding health care and high-quality children’s programs. They offer something simple, but important—hope. Wayne Elsey, founder of Soles4Souls often talks about how Soles4Souls gives hope through a pair of shoes.
We distributed over 250 pairs of new shoes to the men and women at Sulzbacher Center. Wade Roberts, from Orange City Shoe Carnival, came to help get each person fitted with the correct shoes. Many people, after receiving their shoes, made an extra return trip simply to thank Soles4Souls for donating new shoes.
