Mexico Shoe Drop 2009

SFM-CameraSee Pictures From the Project

January 29, 2009

A the team of volunteers handed out new and used shoes to orphanages in Mexico.

Spanish for Medical VolunteerOn Thursday January 29th Spanish for Medical and volunteers were on a mission to donate collected new and used shoes. The project started about a month ago, when an idea came to action. Headed by Russo Mutuc, Kisha Malika Lawson, Jill Hudspeth, and Josie Hudspeth the team was able to help spread the word that a project was in the works to help the kids in Mexico. Within a week, shoes from different parts of Southern California started walking in. Church members, companies, and many random people have come together for a cause and had donated about more than 300 + shoes. New shoes have also come as far as Delaware brought in on a flight from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. The story kept on growing as others opened up their humanitarian efforts to help the unfortunate ones. The biggest challenge for the used shoes collected was physically collecting mass amounts and cleaning them up, along with sorting. Plus they were coming from different locations, and the shoes have traveled the distance from Tehachapi, Santa Clarita, Lake Hughes, San Diego, and Los Angeles. Finally they were in route to Mexico at the orphanages.

This team effort has grown drastically within a three week time frame. Different companies, and volunteers has made this happen. Spanish for Medical, Spanish for Success, Canyon Creek Sports Camp, Divine by Design Angelique M Ehat Higher, Vision Church in Castaic, Country Wide Secondary Marketing Department, St. Judes Travel Department (Danna Lyons), San Diego Mesa College Women’s basketball team (Shannon Schiele, and Sally Davis)

Medical Professionals Donating Time

Spanish for Medical Volunteers

November 2008 – Several nurses got together to help a cause for the poor, in the Los Angeles area. A food drive was organized by nurses, and each week they were able to collect several boxes full of food. It was a great team effort all around, which we had about 8 people volunteer for the project, and mostly nurses and nurses aides. All the food collected was donated to the LA Food Bank. Afterwards, the volunteers kept on with the project, they organized more food and clothing handouts to the homeless, in Skid Row. This has become almost a monthly effort by the team. Spanish for Medical would like to say thank you to the nurses trying to make a difference, not just in the working environment, but also on their spare time.
