I strongly encourage everyone in the community to drop by and drop off a pair of shoes to help a person in need.
Lake Charles, LA (PRWEB) November 08, 2017
Dr. Scott Hannaman and Dr. Edward Hebert are proudly hosting a holiday shoe donation drive for Soles4Souls, a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. New or gently worn pairs of shoes can be dropped off at 1540 Country Club Road, Lake Charles, LA 70605.
“I strongly encourage everyone in the community to drop by and drop off a pair of shoes to help a person in need,” said Dr. Hannaman. Added Dr. Hebert, “By donating unwanted shoes, you will be taking a step to making the world a better place for everyone.”
Soles4Souls aims is to eradicate extreme poverty by 2050. Children every day are prevented from attending school and adults are unable to work as walking becomes unbearable, which perpetuates the cycle of poverty. To date, Soles4Souls has collected and distributed more than 30 million pairs of shoes to those in need in 127 countries around the world and all 50 states in the U.S.
“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, President and CEO of Soles4Souls. “Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone’s life.”

Since 2006, it has distributed more than 30 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries.
