Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Lancaster, Pa., became aware that homeless children in the area weren't attending classes regularly because they lacked shoes, said member Bob Cooper.

The church's community outreach ministry established Soles 4 Kids. On Sneaker Sunday, youth (above) went from pew to pew and gathered up 184 pairs of sneakers and $2,000 toward the purchase of shoes or other needed items. It's expected to become an annual component of the community outreach's theme: "Share a Little, Help a Lot."
