CRESTVIEW — ServantCARE, a non-profit ministry, needs new or "gently worn" shoes of all kinds: men’s, women’s, children’s, cleats, flip flops, boat shoes, athletic shoes, sandals, heels, flats and Crocs, for example.

The organization will accept shoes through March 31 at these drop-off locations: 

•BodyBHealthy, the Car Wash, Day’s Tire and Coney Island

•Hello Beautiful, Hair World and Soap Opera Laundromat

•Exodos Thrift Store, Riviera Fitness and Blonde Bellagio

•Joy Fellowship Church, New Life International Church and New Life Missionary Baptist Church.

• Live Oak Baptist Church and Farm Bureau Insurance. 

ServantCARE will receive $1,000 for every 2,500 pairs of shoes collected. Funds2Orgs will take the donated shoes to impoverished people in Haiti and central Africa and teach them to start, maintain and grow their own business. 

Contact Larry Tuggle, 830-4224, for details.
