It's Shoe Drive time!
2019 Henry Hill Memorial Shoe Drive benefitting Buckner International

Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls, the largest humanitarian aid project of Buckner International, provides new shoes and socks to orphans and vulnerable children in the United States and throughout the world. Since 1999 Buckner has distributed nearly 4 million pairs of new shoes and sock to children in 83 countries. South Mainers have generously supported “Shoes for Orphan Souls” for 19 years, contributing over 150,000 pairs of shoes.  As South Main gears up for the 2019 Shoes for Orphan Souls/ Henry Hill Memorial Shoe Drive, we are now collecting funds to purchase shoes. If you would like to participate by making a monetary contribution which allows shoes to be purchased in bulk at reduced prices, this may be done online at or a check may be written to South Main. In both cases please indicate the contribution is for “Buckner Shoes.” If you would like to participate by helping prepare the shoes for the future shipping day, we will “unpack” shoes Thursday, August 29 from 9:00-11:00 AM. A gift of new shoes can make the difference in a brighter future for vulnerable children. Thank you for your support!
