Event description

Description

Join your Thrivent Member Network - Northland Region in supporting the non-profit Samaritan's Feet. During this one-day event we will serve breakfast and you will hear from the founder of Samaritan's Feet, Manny Ohonme. Manny will tell his inspiring story, followed by the shoe distribution event. We will wash the feet of 1,000 children from our community and give them brand new shoes and socks to start their new school year off on the right foot!

Samaritan's Feet was started in 2003 by Manny Ohonme, who received his first pair of shoes from a missionary when he was a child in Nigeria. Those shoes allowed him to learn and play basketball, ultimately earning him a sports scholarship in the United States. A simple pair of shoes and the kindness shared by this "Good Samaritan" changed the course of Manny's life. The mission of Samaritan's Feet is to bring that same message of hope and love to children and adults in the United States and around the world.

All are welcome to this free event. If you are interested in just coming to the breakfast and Manny's presentation, please sign up for the 'Breakfast and Presentation Only' ticket. To sign up for breakfast, Manny's presentation AND volunteer your time to wash the feet of children and give them new shoes, please sign up for the 'Breakfast, Presentation and Volunteer' ticket.

We also ask that you consider donating to Samaritan's Feet. Just $20 can buy a pair of shoes for a child in need.

This is an excellent opportunity to gather co-workers, school clubs and church groups to practice servant leadership and utilize the power of collaboration to transform communities through service. Interested in bringing a group of 10 or more? Contact Katie Lewis at northlandtmn@thrivent.com about signing up!
