Shoe drive slated
The Messenger. 02.25.08
A shoe drive to collect “gently worn” shoes will begin March 1 and run throughout the month at Shoe Sensation at 1700 West Reelfoot Ave. in Union City. “We are excited about being part of an event that can truly help touch our world,” said David Kerns, area supervisor for Shoe Sensation.
The effort is part of the Soles4Souls™Inc outreach, an international footwear charity based in Nashville that delivers shoes to needy people around the world. To date, more than 3 million pairs of shoes have been collected from shoe companies, retailers and individuals and distributed in more than 60 countries. For more information, visit www.GiveShoes.org or www.Soles4Souls.org or call (866) 521-SHOE.
Locally, call Kerns at 885-6733 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to get involved in the program.
