I am excited to share information on a local non-profit, known as Good
Samaritan’s Feet. Good Samaritan’s Feet works domestically and
internationally to provide new shoes to impoverished children and adults.
Good Samaritan’s Feet not only distributes new shoes and socks, they
also wash each person’s feet and gives a message of love and hope. They
work with impoverished schools, churches, communities, and agencies. This
organization makes a huge difference in the life’s of everyone it serves.
Their dedication and commitment is to make sure no child or adult goes
without shoes.

Good Samaritan's Feet is located on the North side of Indianapolis. The
director is Todd Melloh. I would like to introduce you to Todd Melloh.
As part of a fall campaign through my church,I had the opportunity to
meet and serve with Todd. Todd has lived in Indianapolis his whole life;
he is married and has 4 boys. Yes, 4 boys, that alone keeps him and
his wife very busy. He has worked for Good Samaritan’s Feet for over 5
years. In Indiana, Todd has participated in giving out over 10,000 pairs
of shoes this year alone. Domestically Good Samaritan’s Feet has given out
over 300,000 pairs of shoes. Internationally they have given 500,000 pairs
of shoes.

That deserves a round of applause!

I spoke with Todd recently and wanted to know his secret in helping and serving others. While Todd is a humble individual, he has a strong sense of faith and love for his community. He is a true leader in Indianapolis, and enjoys every opportunity to serve and model leadership. He works with business leaders and encourages them to giveback as well as, have them and their employees serve others. Good Samaritan's Feet is an organization you don’t hear much about in Indianapolis and I hope to change that. My personal experience was life changing and humbling. To see a child receive a new pair of shoes is great, but to see a child receive a new pair of shoes while having their feet washed and shown love is AMAZING and LIFE CHANGING.
