We Had a GREAT Time at 2019 Love Winston-Salem | Saturday, July 27, 9a-2p

Love Out Loud's 4th annual partnership with Kimberley Park Elementary and other local schools in an event called Love Winston-Salem where we’ve distributed shoes to local communities. This year we’re partnering with the 8th Annual Phillips Chapel Missionary Baptist Church Evangelical Outreach and continuing to partner with Crown Cares, Kimberley Park Elementary, The Mobile Health Clinic, and other community partners to host a back to school event for the entire community on Saturday, July 27th from 9a - 2pm

Join us in Thanking our 2019 Sponsors and Partners for July 27th’s Love Winston-Salem

Carolina Crown, Crown Cares | John 3:16 Fund of the Triangle Community Foundation | Joyce Meyer Ministries
Kimberley Park Elementary | Legal Aid | Love Out Loud | Mr. Bill’s Productions | Samaritans Feet
Sheriff Bobby Kimbrough | Phillips Chapel Missionary Baptist Church | WFBMC Health Clinic
WS Urban League | WS Police Department | WS Fire Department

For the last three years, Love Out Loud has partnered with Crown Cares, New Canaan Society, Samaritan's Feet, and other community organizations to wash feet, donate shoes and books, and provide summer community opportunities to students of WS/FC Title 1 schools. Over three years we have provided 3,500 pairs of shoes to our community - but the heart of the event is what you see here.

Judy has been a teacher at a number of WS/FC schools - but currently teaches at Old Town Elementary. She was so blessed to be able to see one of her former students at the event - who ran up to her, hugged her, and thanked her for helping him learn how to read! He's now a 9th grader with dreams to go to college and be a doctor.

Thank you Judy, and all our WS/FC teachers for standing in the gap and helping create futures full of opportunity for the next generation.

Thanks to all our sponsors :

- for helping us exhibit deep levels of compassion and servitude, loving students and parents like Jesus through washing feet
- for meeting a very real need of giving fitting shoes for students in our county - for allowing us to partner with organizations like Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC at the event to teach children about nutrition and sign families up for food stamps
- for providing over 2,000 books to give out to children (and schools) to help them continue their education at home
- for allowing us to Love Out Loud
