>Donate Childrens used Blue Shoes to Spread Child Abuse Awareness!


Did you know that every year, there are hundreds of thousands of children mistreated through abuse and/or neglect. In 2009, 373 NC children lost their lives to child abuse.

Next month, the Guardian Ad Litem, District 3B program plans to raise awareness by using used children’s blue shoes as a visual aid that represents every child that lost their lives because of abuse or neglect.

They NEED YOUR HELP! They need used Children’s blue shoes to complete their traveling exhibit. They are looking for all different sizes from infant to 16 years old.

Please drop off used children’s BLUE shoes at the New Bern Sun Journal office located at 3200 Wellons Blvd in New Bern. They’ve been collecting all month and the last day is March 30th.

Thank you for supporting this special program!

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
