Tulane Athletics is excited to announce a partnership with Samaritan’s Feet this spring.
We are hosting a fundraising event for Samaritan’s Feet at the Tulane vs. LSU Baseball game on the 26th of March. The donations that we collect will fund a shoe distribution at Martin Behrman Charter School, a local elementary school which was formed in December 2005 to serve the educational needs of residents who had returned to the city in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
This distribution will provide shoes to 250 children who may have never owned a pair of NEW shoes, or may be currently wearing shoes that were passed down and are far too small.
As Student-Athletes and role models in the community, we feel that it is our duty to reach out to local communities and at the beginning of May, Tulane Student-Athletes will travel to Martin Behrman to participate in a Samaritan’s Feet Shoe Distribution. It is our mission to not only distribute new shoes, but also wash the feet and provide hope and inspiration to these 250 children.
Please help Samaritan’s Feet and Tulane Student-Athletes by supporting us in raising the $3,500 needed to completely fund this distribution. We are excited to be a part of the much larger mission to distribute 10 million pairs of shoes to 10 million children in the next 10 years. Remember, no amount is too small and every single dollar helps!
Tulane Student-Athletes collected over $500 at the gate during the Tulane vs. LSU Baseball game on the 26th of March; however, we are still short of our goal and are collecting donations here. We are extremely grateful for donations and exposure, so please donate what you can and help us spread the word about our distribution by sharing this website with your friends and family.
A receipt will be sent by email to you automatically following your donation, and we thank you in advance.
