Moms At Lanes Chapel Methodist Church Provide Shoes For Local Families

With school right around the corner moms at Lanes Chapel Methodist Church are busy providing shoes for more than 200 families in East Texas. They call themselves "Moms on a Mission".

"We advertised on radio stations and their local schools and have donations from businesses and church members, so we could go purchase shoes," said Michelle Findley a member of "Moms on a Mission."

The moms wrote down the number of shoes and sizes needed for the first 200 families that called.  Today those families got a chance to pick up their shoes at the church.

"People are very appreciative," said Findley.  "They are just very thankful that God has blessed us to do this for them."

This is the first year for the shoe drive, but Findley says they plan to do it every year.
