Making a difference
Another local example of giving will touch people miles away from Borderland. Holy Trinity Episcopal Church of International Falls, with the help of the larger Borderland community, led the state in a shoe drive.
Soles4Souls distributes the shoes to victims of impoverished areas of the world. This year, it will concentrate on victims of the hurricane season.
Diocesan organizer Wendy Johnson said shoes are a basic element of humanity. She’s right. Shoes are an important aspect of every life. Having a pair of shoes can provide the confidence to get someone to a job interview or get a child to school.
Providing a pair of shoes that didn’t fit or weren’t the right style is a small action that can have meaningful impact on someone who has no shoes, regardless of fit or style.
Small actions by Borderland residents have influenced and changed lives, making a difference in the world and in our view of it.
