S.A.C.T. is a combined effort organization providing anti-trafficking education, shoes, and other necessities to underprivileged school children in southwest Virginia into Appalachia.
Though child trafficking is a national epidemic, our immediate focus is the children we hear so little about in Appalachia and mountain populations. These are not the poster children we often see.
A THOUSAND PAIRS OF SHOES
Our first and immediate project is the collection of new winter shoes and winter boots for as many as 1,000 children, hence “A Thousand Pairs of Shoes.” Children’s shoe sizes are already being collected. The need begins at 5 years old with shoe sizes ranging from children’s size 1 to male adult size 12. Contact us to get involved.
S.A.C.T also draws upon the Poor Busters Project, an organization founded specifically to provide food in Appalachia where food banks are depleted.
S.A.C.T. is a natural fit for co-founders Tokarz & Bergman. Both are mothers, strong advocates for the protection and safety of children, and Virginia residents.
WANT TO HELP?
Help S.A.C.T. / “A Thousand Pairs of Shoes” provide the means to prevent and help the children desperately running from the travesty of child trafficking. Shoes will give them hope and courage, and help them kick trafficking to the curb.
