ST. LOUIS (PRWEB) November 28, 2017
BrightStar Care of Central St. Louis County, MO is 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 BrightStar Care of Central St. Louis County, 2190 S. Mason Road, Suite 204, St. Louis, MO 63131.
“I strongly encourage everyone in the community to embrace the spirit of giving this holiday season and drop off a pair of shoes to help a person in need,” said Charlie Scarlett, owner of BrightStar Care of Central St. Louis County, MO.
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.”
