October 16, 2013 - The Green Park Lutheran School's chapel offering recently was for the Shoeman Water Project. Students from the K-8 school collected shoes from family and friends for the cause. Third-grader Cole Buckley took it upon himself to contact his neighbors. 'I was really impressed with how many kids needed shoes and I wanted to help them out,' he stated in a news release. After a decade of travel and humanitarian missions in Kenya, George 'The Shoeman' Hutchings realized that without clean water, all other aid would not matter, so he established Shoeman Water Projects in 2008.
