Today I jumped in my car and set off to go meet up with the folks in charge of the San Diego Rescue Mission.  Give Your Sole is thrilled to be donating all the shoes collected at this years San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon to the mission.  Upon my arrival I found a parking spot right out front and fed the meter with what quarters I could find between my seats and under the mat…..hope it’s enough…gotta feeling it won’t be!

I was greeted by Jenna and Mark; both who were extremely kind.  I could tell right away they had found their calling as they made me feel at home.  I can only imagine they do the same for those that come in to escape the streets for a night.  Every night 60+ women and children come in for food and shelter and the staff at the SD Rescue Mission are ready for them. Once a hospital, the building is perfect for those that qualify for their year long program to have private rooms.

After an hour or more of taking the tour and visiting with Herb and the staff, I knew that Give Your Sole was blessed to be teaming up with them.   I also knew my quarters most likely had run out and the ticket on my car confirmed it…..$30 for an hour and a half to visit with some wonderful people who are no doubt making a difference in the world and their community…..worth every penny!

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me…

Matthew 25:35-36

The Association of Gospel Rescue Missions is a wonderful organization that makes it their mission to proclaim the passion of Jesus toward the hungry, homeless, abused and addicted.  The AGRM has a chapter located in every major city nationwide including San Diego.  Give Your Sole is pleased to be teaming up with the San Diego Rescue Mission who will be distributing the shoes that will be collected at the San Diego Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon.  Every pair of shoes donated during the expo and on race day will go to those who are less fortunate within the San Diego Community.  Not everyone has a calling to work in a rescue mission but all of us have been given a heart to help those in need.  Your shoe size is the perfect fit for someone so gather as many pairs as you can and donate them at the race!

“The King will reply, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’

Matthew 25:40
