Wow !!!!!!!!!
Seventh and eighth grade
Christian Formation Student at St. Vincent Martyr Catholic Church are coordinating a sneaker drive for Rwandan Orphans. They will be collecting new or gently used sneakers in all sizes now through December 5TH.

The Gisimba Orphanage and MUHIMA Primary School in Kigali, Rwanda was first brought to the attention of the St. Vincent’s Community by Marie Claudine MUKAMABANO, a parishioner and Rwandan Genocide survivor orphan. The Students heard her story of losing her family, friends and neighbors to genocide and helping the many orphaned children of Rwanda became the focus of their current service project. When asked why sneakers would be so important Ms. MUKAMABANO replied,” Many of the children don’t have shoes. The ones who do are forced to wear them for 2-3 years. New shoes would make a good Christmas gift.”
