PHOTOS FROM PAST EVENTS
Foster Care Awareness Walk
9 AM April 26th, 2014

A 1 mile family-oriented walk to promote AWARENESS and RESPONSE to the crisis faced by Oklahoma’s 9000+ Foster Children due to the shortage of good foster homes and lack of community involvement.  

Information will be available on 3 ways to bring solutions to this crisis through PRAYING, VOLUNTEERING, or FOSTERING/ADOPTING. We encourage the entire Oklahoma Faith Community to participate in "DEFENDING THE FATHERLESS" - our own Oklahoma children who desperately need the love and support of the body of Christ. 

DONATE A SUITCASE OR FILL A SUITCASE

New or used suitcases may be donated to Oklahoma’s Foster Children, who often have only a trash bag to use for their few personal belongings.

Cash donations to provide new clothing, pajamas, shoes, books or personal care items for Oklahoma children in foster care can be made through Citizens Caring For Children.


             

BRING A SUITCASE TO CARRY OR PULL

Bring a suitcase to pull or carry during the walk - symbolic of the many moves Foster Children endure due to the shortage of foster homes.

        


          

 


Walk A Mile In My Shoes is a project of
