Project in progress
What is your wish for this project?
My wish is to conserve resources by reusing shoes that would otherwise end up in a landfill, and make a difference for people in need.
How are you going to do it?
Ellie’s Offering is a charitable shoe collection program inspired by the servant heart and unwavering generosity of my granny, Mary Ellen Rhoden (Ellie). New and gently worn shoes for all ages are collected and distributed to areas with the most pressing needs, such as relief in the wake of natural disasters. We will collect shoes in Stuart, and then distribute them locally to the almost 2000 homeless residents, or transport them to other areas of need.
