WAWZ-FM Produces ‘Empty Shoe Memorial’ (WAWZ-FM)

Topic: Community-Focused Initiatives

Pillar of Fire’s WAWZ-FM Princeton, N.J. produced its “Empty Shoe Memorial” in honor of the anniversary of 9/11. WAWZ-FM staff visited local business in July and August to collect 2,996 shoes to represent every person lost in the attacks at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the four plane crashes. The shoes were displayed in a local meadow from September 10 – 18 and then donated to Soles 4 Souls, an organization that fights poverty by repurposing gently-worn shoes.
