A Time to Give – Soles 4 Souls
This entry was posted on December 16, 2011 by admin.
When you stop in to shop with us, we encourage you to bring in your gently used shoes to deposit in our Soles4Souls boxes. With your support, we have donated thousands of shoes to people in need through our association with the Soles4Souls Program.
Soles 4 SoulsSoles4Souls is a Nashville-based charity that collects shoes from the warehouses of footwear companies and the closets of people like you and distributes these shoes to people in need. Since 2005, Soles4Souls has delivered over 16 million pairs of new and gently worn shoes. The shoes have been distributed to people in over 127 countries, including Kenya, Thailand, Nepal and the United States.
Soles4Souls is a 501(c)(3) recognized by the IRS and donating parties are eligible for tax advantages.
Go Green by Donating shoes through Soles4Souls is also a way to “go green.” Last year alone, Americans discarded more than 300 million pairs of shoes. When these shoes break down in our landfills, the toxic glue that holds the shoes together can leak into our water supply and atmosphere. Reduce the strain on our environment by donating your "gently worn" footwear to people in need instead of throwing them away.
Thanks to the assistance of Atlanta do-gooder Barry Corker, founder of Destiny, we are now able to accept large donations of shoes from your organizations. Make a difference by organizing a shoe drive in conjunction with your school, church, non-profit organization or even your local running group! In partnership with Soles4Souls, some of these shoes will also be distributed locally to organizations such as the Atlanta Union Mission.
