Operation Shoestring Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Amid the social tumult of the mid-1960s, a small group of courageous and caring citizens made the bold statement of declaring what they believed. Those beliefs — that every person in the City of Jackson should be treated with dignity, respect and kindness regardless of their station in life — were unpopular in some circles and put some of the members of this group in physical danger. Their vision inspired the early work of Operation Shoestring, and their courage and tenacity continue to inspire us today.

We are proud to build on the legacy of leaders who have helped shape a better tomorrow for children and families in Jackson. And it is with great humility and hope that we set forth this statement of intention and belief for Operation Shoestring’s Board of Directors and Staff.
