Soles4Souls Shoe Drive
Providing shoes to people who need them most.
Because a good pair of shoes can help someone step out of poverty.
When someone doesn’t have shoes, it’s not just their feet that suffer.
Vulnerable to disease
Every day millions are exposed to unsanitary conditions that can lead to sickness, even death.
Unable to attend school
Children often don’t meet uniform requirements in order to attend school and are unable to receive an education.
Loss of dignity
Without something as basic as a good pair of shoes, people often feel hopeless and discouraged.
“Giving is not just about making a donation; it’s about making a difference. That’s why we want to be a part of Soles4Souls,” said Kathleen Comerford, founder of the Comerford Group and Broker Associate at Keller Williams On the Water Sarasota. “We are so grateful for what they are doing and want to rally together our community to help in their venture of providing for people in need. Shoes are such a basic human necessity, yet there are many that struggle to possess them. We can’t wait to see how many pairs of shoes we collect for this great cause!”
Soles4Souls is a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. Children every day are prevented from attending school and adults are unable to work as walking becomes unbearable, which perpetuates the cycle of poverty.
“Businesses and individuals that host donation drives for Soles4Souls help us fulfill our mission by providing short-term relief and long-term solutions to global poverty,” said Buddy Teaster, Soles4Souls CEO. “Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone’s life.”
