MLB players Ronald Guzman and Nelson Cruz deliver shoes and hope to children in Dominican Republic

This week, Texas Rangers player Ronald Guzman and Minnesota Twins player Nelson Cruz distributed new shoes collected by Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls® to children in La Vega, Dominican Republic

For many children in the Dominican Republic, the cost of new uniforms and shoes to fit growing children can add up quickly and for families struggling to provide food for their children, new shoes may not be a priority, excluding them from receiving an education. 

Thanks to the shoe collection last summer at the Texas Rangers Youth Academy at Mercy Street Sports Complex, these children are free to follow their dreams and receive an education without worrying about their footwear. 

New shoes mean hope to children in the Dominican Republic.
