St. Anthony’s Parish requests footwear

The social-ministry committee of St. Anthony’s Parish, Groton, is seeking new or slightly used shoes and sneakers to be sent to children and adults in Ecuador.

These items are vital, as many residents of the Amazon section walk barefoot through areas containing toxic waste left by oil companies, risking a variety of illnesses.

Shoes and sneakers may be dropped off in a box located in the church vestibule. St. Anthony’s is located at 312 Locke Road (Route 38). For more details, call 607/898-5135.
