Our donated food being added to a pile at First Baptist Kettering (3939 Swigart Road).
Shoes 4 the Shoeless is one of my favorite Dayton nonprofits. They provide shoes and socks to the many children in the Dayton area who are in desperate need. With schools closed and social distancing rules in effect, the organization’s planned events needed to be cancelled. Instead of taking a break, they have shifted to supplying food to many people in need of help.
We participated in Round 3 of this effort. We signed up to be a Food Box Captain, which meant that we (and anyone we could talk into helping) needed to assemble a specific list of groceries (2 loafs of bread, 2 cans of fruit, etc.) and deliver that food to First Baptist on April 27. Round 4 signups are currently underway, for food to be delivered to the church on May 18. Details are at
