Shoes For Belize


St. Timothy's has embarked on a mission to help impoverished school children in Belize. Recently, we were honored with visitors from this beautiful country including the Bishop of Belize, The Rt. Rev. Phillip S. Wright. The Diocese of Ohio enjoys a Companion Diocese relationship with the Anglican Church of Belize. St. Timothy's was blessed to welcome the Bishop of Belize and two Belizean lay women to our Clothesline ministry. Ensuing conversations revealed that the 5,000 children in the poverty-wracked Diocese's schools are in desperate need of shoes "good school-type shoes – used or new – black, closed in rather than open toes, flat heel, boys and girls, preferably leather along with rain boots. Each year St.Timothy's takes up a collection and sends it to the children in Belize.
