About Us


Shoes from the Heart helping local children was started in 2012 in Macon Missouri. Donnie and Cindy Bonuchi started this ministry with the help of two Sunday school classes. Our first Mission was providing 65 pairs of brand new tennis shoes to the children at the Macon county head start. Since 2012 we are currently helping local children in need along with homeless Veterans throughout 8 states, providing up to 30,000 pairs of shoes per year. We have been blessed to have the support of regional communities and organizations along with corporate sponsors across Missouri and the United States, helping us on our journey.
