Barefoot Sunday returns April 27 to Bradenton

HERALD STAFF REPORTApril 19, 2014 

BRADENTON -- Bradenton will have its third-annual Barefoot Sunday the week after Easter at Christ Episcopal Church, 4030 Manatee Ave. W.

Leave your shoes for a needy soul at any one of three services: 7:30 a.m., 9 a.m. or 11 a.m. April 27.

Any shoes, sandals, work boots, childrens shoes -- new or gently worn -- will be accepted, said Father Joel Morsch. The collection will then be sorted for distribution April 28.

"We routinely donate more than 1,000 pairs to various charities right here in our community," Morsch said in a press release. "All the proceeds will remain right here in Manatee County. As our homeless and needy population continues to grow, so does our need to be our brother's keeper and a loving and giving light in our community."

Information: 941-747-3904.
