Indiana league convention focuses on shoes for hope
INDIANAPOLIS (8/30/10)--Manny Ohonme, founder of Samaritan’s Feet, one of the largest humanitarian not-for-profit organizations in the world, will present the keynote address at the Indiana Credit Union League Convention next month. From humble beginnings and a poverty stricken lifestyle in Africa, to the corporate boardrooms in lower Manhattan, to his current role as a global philanthropist, Ohonme will challenge attendees to enrich their work lives, enhance innovation, and improve team dynamics to develop their skills as socially conscious, purpose-driven leaders. Attendees can participate in a special collection for Ohonme’s organization, Samaritan’s Feet, which is dedicated to changing lives through Shoes of Hope distributions in Indiana, nationwide and globally. Collection points will be available at various convention events for shoe donations. The organization is in particular need of children’s athletic shoes. The league will collect new shoes for either boys or girls. “We are looking forward to having Manny kick off the convention by sharing his enthusiasm and experience,” said league President John McKenzie. “We want to help his organization meet its goal of raising 10 million shoes in 10 years.”
