A host of volunteers, dignitaries and community partners joined New Birth Missionary Baptist Church’s back-to-school outreach event where 5,000 students received free new shoes on Aug. 3. The line wrapped around the building at the church’s campus in the City of Stonecrest. In July, New Birth’s Senior Pastor Dr. Jamal Bryant issued a call to his congregation to donate 1,000 brand new shoes for students in grades K-12. What started as a goal of 1,000 shoes quickly swelled to more than 5,000 donated items thanks to the generosity of his congregation and various community partners.
