Through promoting Soles4Souls at festivals and making our store a donation drop-off location, we are hoping we can gather a large amount of donations and help improve the quality of life of many people in need.
Union, NJ (PRWEB) June 08, 2015
Shopping Blitz, an online marketplace offering over 400 of the best brands of clothing, shoes, accessories and lifestyle products, has recently announced its store in Union, NJ will be used as a drop-off location for Soles4Souls, a non-for-profit institution dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty. You can drop off your new and used shoes and clothing at 1012 Greeley Ave., Unit A . Union, NJ 07083.
As 1 in 4 adults in the world are living on less than a dollar a day, basic necessities like shoes are not readily available to them. A pair of shoes can protect a person's feet from cuts and infections that can be life threatening if not treated. Soles4Souls collects and distributes new and used shoes and clothing via direct donations to people in need, as well as uses the donations to provision qualified micro-enterprise programs designed to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities. Through this, Soles4Souls is empowering those same individuals in need to provide for themselves by selling the donated goods for their own profit.
Soles4Souls collects donations from private individuals, faith based institutions, organizations and corporate partners. Shopping Blitz is a proud corporate partner of Soles4Souls and hopes using its store as a drop-off location will encourage members of the Union community and the surrounding areas to donate their used and new shoes and clothing. Shopping Blitz also promotes Soles4Souls' mission at large festivals, such as Bonnaroo, as well as at smaller festivals, including Mysteryland, Strangecreek and SouperGroove, which will take place Labor Day weekend.
"At Shopping Blitz we strongly support Soles4Souls anti-poverty mission and believe everyone deserves their own pair of shoes," said Hugh Sinclair, Vice President of Logistics at Shopping Blitz. "Through promoting Soles4Souls at festivals and making our store a donation drop-off location, we are hoping we can gather a large amount of donations and help improve the quality of life of many people in need."
