We recently heard that the local elementary school had a need so we set up an appointment with the principal. It was the perfect opportunity to share with her about our dreams of revitalizing the local church to meet the needs of those in Calwa, including the gang members and their families. She welcomed us with open arms and we are so excited about the possibilities of being able to use the school campus to begin ways of getting to know the locals. The need they have now is for shoes & socks. Some students either don’t have shoes or their feet are bloody from wearing torn up shoes without socks. We presented this need to New Hope Church in Clovis and were overwhelmed by their response. We’ve called it the “Share-A-Pair” project.
