    100 pairs of sandals from our Repair • Reuse • Recycle department were recently given to the impoverished people of Piura, Peru via the students of JSerra Catholic High School. Over the 9 day Thanksgiving Holiday, missionary students built 6 houses and 1 chapel in Piura, Peru. On the last day (Black Friday) they hosted a Christmas party at the Parish and invited the families of the new homes and all the families from the past 14 years of serving. Everyone received Rainbow Sandals and had a great time. If you would like to learn more about Rev. Joseph Uhen battling poverty in Peru click HERE

    We would like to thank everyone who returned their sandals to our Repair • Reuse • Recycle department that helps us help others and a special thanks to the missionary students of JSerra High School.
