“LITTLE SHOE” project


Dear all,
we are starting our “LITTLE SHOE” Project, in order to collect and send of children’s shoes for Volsk orphanage for disabled children in Russia, Saratov region. Currently there are 42 kids of age 4 - 8. They are in severe need of shoes and sandals (for indoor use, and outdoors in summer.)

We are collecting lightweight reliable new and used summer shoes, made of leather or other good-quality material, of Canadian sizes 8 to 12 (for ages 4-8.) Other types of lightweight shoes will also be gratefully accepted.

Other needed items include tights and socks, underwear pants and t-shirts, and “Centrum” vitamins for kids (this brand is sold in Russia and hence will be accepted.)

God bless everyone who helps!
See Web page in English: http://www.pinewoodland.net/_dd/volsk/index_en.htm

If you would like to help, please contact Anna and Alexey at alexanna@pinewoodland.net or (604) 224-2266, or in person. We are going to mail what we collect approximately in 2 weeks.
Alexei

This is great. I will pass the word to my friends with children. Kids grow out of these items so quickly and they is often still lots of wear left. I'll see what I can gather up.

alexei, our friend has donated a large collection of quality clothing. (this time small items :) ) perhaps you and anna could decide if there are some things you'd like to pack in with the shoes. there are some other families we could share the remainder with. feel free to contact me.
