gallery Red Shoes Gala at St. PJ’s

The Story of the Red Shoes 

In 2002, a frightened and crying four-year-old girl was brought into St. PJ’s Emergency Shelter, along with her six-year-old brother. Due to severe abuse and neglect, they were removed from their home. While the case manager was comforting her, she noticed that the little girl was wearing red glittered shoes. When asked, “Where did you get those?” the little girl responded, “My grandma gave me these shoes because someday I am going to go home.”
