4. s4ts have received numerous awards including recognition from the Ohio State Senate, and many local school boards. The Ohio Governor’s Office of faith -based and community-based programs lists us as one of the best non-profits in the state of Ohio.
5. s4ts do not typically serve outside of our 7 county area, but the need for shoes and socks is so overwhelming in Texas, we decided we had to help!
6. s4ts will be leaving Tues. Sept. 19. Our destination is still not confirmed, but we are looking at Beaumont and Port Arthur, and have made good contacts there. Those communities are outside of Houston, and are almost completely destroyed. Most of the relief is going to Houston, leaving out these smaller communities.
