Destiny center sends 500 pounds of shoes to Haiti

Destiny Worship Center, 2900 W. Sixth Ave., collected approximately 500 pounds of new or gently worn boots and shoes for men, women and children who live in Haiti.

The “Soles4Souls” project, part of the outreach ministry, was conducted in November. Shoes were packaged and sent to help needy families in the devastated area, a spokesman said.

The ministry also gave $500 scholarships to single parents enrolled in college. The recipients were Valerie Hayes, Katherine Wilson and Earlene Brown. A fourth scholarship will be presented New Year’s Eve night.
