DETROIT (WXYZ) — A Detroit ministry has is donating boots to veterans in need.

Brother Joe's Youth and Street Ministry delivered nearly 300 pairs to the Michigan Veterans Foundation and Veterans Returning Home.

So far, the ministry has given out almost a thousand pairs on the streets.

Brother Joe says the mission was inspired after seeing a man who lost his feet from being out in the cold.

The ministry's goal is to collect and distribute 5,000 pairs of new or gently used boots.
