We are a small homeschool group in Va. We love for our families to be involved in community projects that allow families to work together, thus increasing the bond of the family unit and also encouraging people around the world. The shoe collection for those in need of shoes was a perfect fit for our group. The people who donated the shoes also made comments about the joy they had in being able to help others. God always works this way! We appreciate the integrity of the workers at Shoes for H.O.P.E. They kept us informed and helped us tremendously in being able to accomplish this goal of collecting over 2,500 pairs of shoes. We thought this would be a goal that we would have difficulty doing in our small group but the workers at Shoes for H.O.P.E. showed us how and supported our efforts in completing this wonderful project! We highly recommend this organization.

While on a mission trip in 2017, I had the pleasure of meeting the people from Missions In Motion International Ministries. During our times of conversation, they shared about their programs and the impact this has had in many countries.
In January 2019 I had the privilege of taking part in their Angel Feet Program while in Honduras. There we were washing the feet of children, putting on new socks and shoes that were donated especially for the Angel Feet Program. The smiles on the children's faces and their hugs provided a steady stream of tears flowing down my face. As a 75 year old great grandmother the experience of being part of a mission to show love to others in a personal way still brings tears to my eyes. Missions In Motion is an organization that truly makes a positive impact, both spiritually and physically, across the street and around the world.

I had the pleasure of helping lead our church in the collection of shoes for the SHOES For HOPE program . We reached out to other churches and schools in our community to collect shoes and make a difference in the lives of people around the world. Cathy Shupe was a great resource to our church and very pleasant to work with. Her enthusiasm for missions is contagious!

Missions in Motion has supported our non-profit for about 6 years, providing volunteers to help in our warehouse, on a regular basis, and in emergency/crisis times. They have been an immeasurable asset to us, bringing large teams to allow us to tackle big projects that would often be left undone because of the lack of resources. In one case, they brought 20+ people to work long hours to prepare a cargo container shipment to a developing country that was in great need due to economic and environmental disaster. I have found their leadership to be devoted, focused, and full of integrity and have thoroughly enjoyed our partnership.

I first met Cathy Shupe at a Kiwanis Meeting in West Chester, Ohio. She talked about the “Shoes For H.O.P.E.” program in making a positive impact by the collection of new and gently used shoes for people who don’t have shoes. I learned this is a way of preventing serious disease, especially for kids walking to school. We collected a lot of shoes that day which I helped load into her pick-up truck. I was impressed with the sincerity of her presentation and the practical ways of making a difference. Her methods were leveraging. She reminded me of some of the methods used by Mother Teresa, “Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”

I am one of the sponsors of Missions In Motion annual homeless outreach program called “A Day of H.O.P.E.” to benefit the homeless and low-income community in Hamilton, Ohio. On Saturday, September 14th the organization will celebrate their 5th year, attracting more than 150 volunteers, providing meals, haircuts, health screening, hygiene kits, clothes and makeovers. The event is growing year-over-year, helping to restore and build dignity, benefitting children, families and individuals experiencing or facing homelessness. Also, if you participate, you will feel great, connected to humanity and our community of Hamilton, Ohio, providing hope.

I work part time at a running shoe store where Missions in Motion has a collection point. It has been such a blessing to see my customers get excited when they find out their used shoes can be used as a blessing to others. I cannot tell you how many times people have left our store only to come back a short time later with bags of shoes because they want to participate in this great ministry. I have gotten to see this non profit grow over the last 3+ years because of the hard work and service mind set of Missions in Motion.

I have been a community volunteer for “Missions in Motion” for the last 2 years. I have assisted with their local community event to provide dinner and hope to homeless and low-income residents of Butler County, Ohio. With their help, meals, hair-cuts, school supplies and clothing were provided to over 200 residents. They also collect thousands of shoes and deliver them to third world countries such as Honduras and Mexico. It is inspiring to be a part of such a caring organization. They share the gospel and provide inspiration to all those who meet them. As a leader of a local human service organization, it has been one of the most inspirational experiences of my career.

I helped Missions in Motion collect shoes and socks for their recent trip to Honduras to distribute them. We are so blessed to live here in the US where simple things like shoes are so abundant. The cool thing the folks who went to Honduras to distribute the shoes did to the recipients prior to giving someone a pair of shoes and socks was to wash their feet, much like Jesus did. They are true servants of God!

I really enjoy volunteering for Missions In Motion's SHOES for H.O.P.E program because I get an opportunity to help other people in foreign countries have a better quality of life with gently used or new shoes. It's really awesome to be involved with an organization that makes such a difference for others who need shoes. Before volunteering sorting and bagging shoes for the Shoes for H.O.P.E program, I didn't realize how many people were going without shoes and how great the need is. It's been such a blessing to help serve in such a caring organization!

I have been a part of Missions In Motion International Ministries since 2012. I have really enjoyed being a part of this organization. Missions in Motion does a lot to support International ministries and local ministries too. The organization is about being the hands and feet of Christ and helping those in need so they can see and feel the love of Christ.

God has allowed me to be involved with this awesome organization and I'm so thankful for that. 2 things that sets Missions in Motions apart from other organizations is their integrity & the fact that family's with really little children can do things with them. Those 2 things are something you don't find everyday in an organization.

Missions in Motion has such a sweet heart for the people in our community. They've committed their days to help and think of others before themselves. We are privileged to partner with them by collecting shoes and helping with events like "A Day of H.O.P.E." They are making a difference. (:

I have been privileged to serve with Missions in Motion International Ministries (MIM) programs such as "Shoes for H.O.P.E." and "Day of H.O.P.E." The shoe program helps conserve resources and serves the underprivileged in Haiti, who are now able to protect their feet through shoe donations here in the U.S.

The "Day of H.O.P.E." truly helps brighten the lives of low income and homeless in the greater Hamilton, OH area by providing food, haircuts, health screenings, and many other valuable resources for them. It was exciting to be a part of a celebration for these people groups. Helping people understand that they are significant through the "Day of H.O.P.E." is a critical component of lifting them out of their circumstances. Along with caring for people, it was good to see that MIM is caring for the earth through recycling at the "Day of H.O.P.E." event.
