St. Mary Church Religious Education Program (PREP) is on a mission!  Help us raise money to distribute The Shoe That Grows – Dec 3-24, 2017

Over 1.5 billion people suffer from soil transmitted diseases worldwide.  Without shoes, children are especially vulnerable to soil-transmitted diseases and parasites that can cause illness and even death.  Children who get sick miss school, can’t help their families, and suffer needlessly. And since children’s feet grow so quickly, they often outgrow donated shoes within a year, leaving them once again exposed to illness and disease.  The Shoe That Grows can change all that.
