Mount Pleasant girls' basketball helps Samaritan's Feet

The Mount Pleasant girls' basketball team is helping the Samaritan's Feet organization by collecting donations of money and shoes at their Jan. 9 game against Jay M. Robinson.

During the game, Mount Pleasant coaches will also go barefoot in support of the children in need.

Samaritan's Feet raises money and collects new shoes for needy children around the world.
300 million people wake up each morning without a pair of shoes to protect their feet from injury and disease.

"The goal of Samaritan’s Feet is to provide shoes to...these individuals in the next 10 years by teaching them a biblical story of faith, hope, and love, demonstrating those truths in touching them by washing their feet, and treating them to a new pair of shoes and socks," said the orgainzation's Web site.
