Soles4Souls Nets 4,667 Pairs of Shoes in 2018 Campaign

Soles4Souls concluded its week-long drive with a total of 4,667 pairs of shoes donated in one week at Southeast Missouri State University. Shoes were collected throughout last week in front of Houck Stadium. Organizers would like to thank everyone who donated shoes, volunteered and helped promote the annual shoe drive. The shoes collected will be delivered to Soles4Souls, a non-profit social enterprise that creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world. Founded in 2006, the organization has distributed more than 30 million pairs of new and used shoes in 127 countries. All of the donated shoes will be distributed to the organization’s micro-enterprise programs that create jobs in Haiti, Honduras and other developing nations. The resulting revenue will help fund the free distribution of new shoes and clothing in the United States, Canada and developing nations around the world.
