Coopers collecting donations for needyby jmaloni
Operation: Walk the Walk is a campaign to collect men's new and used shoes, sneakers and boots that are in good condition. These will be distributed to the homeless at the Niagara Gospel Rescue Mission on Aug. 16.
The collection will take place from now until Aug. 13.
Many men come in to the mission with requests for footwear. While targeting the needs of men, the mission also has women and children that attend the dinners and are in need. Donations of used women's and children's shoes in good condition, as well as new socks for men, women and children will be accepted.
Donations can be dropped off at Cooper Sign Company & Old Glory Flag at 7350 Porter Road in Town of Niagara. Contact John A. Cooper Jr. at 716-510-7354 or by email at [email protected] with any questions.
