The Bishop Sullivan Center is one of the largest providers of household assistance in the Kansas City area. Its mission is to provide basic necessities to people who are unable to do so, and to assist those who are able, to become financially self-sufficient by finding employment. Services provided include a food pantry, household assistance, an employment program and services to the Operation Heart and Soleindigent elderly.

The Bishop Sullivan Center has developed a program called Operation Heart and Sole. The program, in partnership with the Kansas City Royals player Christian Colon, visits Kansas City, Missouri Public Schools and delivers brand new shoes to Kansas City’s most needy children.

Since the program launched in 2015, more than 1,000 pairs of new shoes have been given to children in need. For many children, the pair of shoes they receive from Operation Heart and Sole is their first ever NEW pair. Operation Heart and Sole visits schools on a monthly basis and sends a big thank you to all those have helped make the program possible.

If you’re interested in learning more or donating to Operation Heart and Sole, contact The Bishop Sullivan Center at 816-231-0984 or Nicholas Porto at 816-463-2311.
