Meet a Need
Not every child or student has access to quality shoes when they need them. So walking in worn out shoes or hand-me downs that don't quite fit is the all too common solution.
Worn-out shoes can make a student feel like they don't fit in at school. They can injure feet, or worse, hurt a child's self-esteem. They can make a student feel less than.
But that doesn't have to be the case.
Through Crossroads Cares, we want to provide kids with brand new shoes to help them feel confident, comfortable and special.
Would you like to partner with us by sponsoring a new pair of shoes to a student in need?

Kicks 4 Kids Christmas 2021
Crossroads Cares exists to show the rich and abundant love of Christ while meeting the needs of the community around us. So when the opportunity came in to bless Sunrise Elementary (a DVUSD Title I school) with new shoes for all their students, we couldn’t refuse.
It was clear that the work and time ahead was bigger than all of us. But God loves to use human limitations of time and resources to display His strength. With only five days to purchase, organize and deliver the shoes, the church body rallied around Kicks for Kids Christmas. Over 400 pairs of brand new shoes were purchased or funded to bless 180 families of students in need!
After hours of shopping, sorting, grouping and bagging shoes for each family, we loaded up the truck and spent Sunday afternoon at Sunrise Elementary. Many of our own families and individuals volunteered their time to distribute the shoes, personally meeting the parents and students we were honored to bless this Christmas.
Few things compare to the gleeful chatter of young children trying on their new pair of shoes and showing them off with pride. Nothing can surpass the warm smile of a parent who now has the ability to wrap and give their own children something so valuable. The generosity of our church body through Crossroads Cares brought Christmas joy to homes where it may not have otherwise come.
To God be all the glory.
