Just over a year later, Our Hearts to Your Soles returned to Light of Life Ministries to shoe the men staying in the shelter that night. This was part of the ten state national program on March 8, which shoed over 700 men nationally.
Pittsburgh Light of Life Ministries February 24, 2006
This was our first event which occurred at the Light of Life Ministries on the NorthSide of Pittsburgh. Physicians from Allegheny General Hospital as well as volunteers from Hangar Orthopedics and Colaizzi Pedorthic Center participated. Over 50 men received the care they needed and left with a new pair of shoes. Thick toenails and callosities were trimmed by the medical staff. A man with a sore on his foot received local wound care. Some men in size 9 shoes were properly fit into size 12 shoes. The men at the shelter expressed their gratitude-some with words of thanks and other with simple smiles and a nod.
