8,589 Pairs of Shoes Donated During Soles4Souls Campaign

Soles4Souls on Campus and the Baptist Student Center collected 8,589 pairs of new and gently worn shoes last week to help make a difference here and around the world. This year’s collection broke every previous record by a generous outpouring of the campus and community. Southeast students represented 95 percent of the volunteers who assisted during the collection, which ended at noon Monday. “I’m so very proud of them,” said Cheryl Reinagel of the Department of Agriculture, who helps coordinate Soles4Souls on Campus.
