A local ministry and charity are partnering to help people in Japan devastated by the earthquake and tsunami.
Greenhouse Ministries is teaming up with Soles 4 Souls to provide hundreds of pairs of shoes. The ministry expects to send about 300 pairs of shoes to victims in Japan.
Organizers said it's their way of giving the victims hope.
"People in Nashville saw the floods or went through the flood last year and know how it feels to lose everything, and even if it's so far away, we all want to give back," said Leslie Mertz of Greenhouse Ministries. "Shoes are a little thing that are not going to cost you any money because you've already purchased them and had them in your home."
The Greenhouse Ministries and Soles 4 Souls shoe drive will continue through April 1.
