2022 'Hope Givers' and Honorees for the 'Person of the Year' Named by Samaritan's Feet

Hope Givers, representing medical, business, NFL, and law fields, join Samaritan's Feet's global efforts and will be celebrated at the 2022 Barefoot Gala sponsored by Truist on November 12. In this "coopetition," the honoree that raises the most funds to impact the greatest number of children will be recognized there as the Samaritan's Feet 2022 "Person of the Year."

Samaritan's Feet International is pleased to announce 17 outstanding servant leaders as "Hope Givers"; all exemplify its mission through their professional and philanthropic contributions. These individuals and couples are committed to inspiring others in the community and enriching the lives of the 1.5 billion children and people infected with diseases that are transmitted through contaminated soil around the world through the gift of shoes and a message of hope.
