Heart for Soles

The mission of the Heart for Soles Ministry is to share the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by meeting the physical needs of economically distressed children in our community through the provision of dependable shoes.

Heart for Soles

Shoes for kids from people who care


The Annual shoe drive starts on Sunday, September 10, 2023 and runs through October 1, 2023. If you sign-up to purchase a pair of shoes, you will be given a card with a specific child and shoe size to purchase. All shoes will be collected after our services on Sunday and Wednesday.

If you attend our services online, we have an option for you to participate by donating online. Simply click here and select the “Heart for Soles” fund when you donate. The suggested donation amount is $50 to cover one pair dependable sneakers, but any amount you are able to give will go toward a new pair of shoes.

All shoes will be distributed to schools within a 5-mile radius of CASM.

CASM has been supporting the K-8 schools in our community since 2015 and with your support, we have donated over 700 shoes. Our goal this year to collect 130 shoes.

*No shoes were donated in 2020 due to COVID.
