DSC_0367Auxiliaries in Ministry (AIM) director Steven Tipton collected more than 10,000 pairs of shoes to ship to Haiti and Kenya. This project was initiated by Tipton’s son who traveled to Haiti several months ago. Steven, Jr., visited a school in Haiti and met with children who were in need of shoes. Holy Redeemer Elementary and Middle School students held an in-school contest to collect shoes and award the classroom with the most donated shoes with honors. Pictured are Principal Jutiki Smith, AIM director Steven Tipton, Chandra Alston, Sis. Dominique Brown and Dr. Bobbie Lathan. The Milwaukee Times participated in collecting shoes and presented several hundred pairs of shoes donated by customers and friends. Bishop Sedgwick Daniels is the pastor of Holy Redeemer COGIC.
