In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, I strongly encourage everyone in the community to drop by one of our offices and give a pair of shoes to help a person in need this holiday season.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (PRWEB) November 28, 2017
Realtor Michael B. Prather and The Prather Team at Keller Williams, along with new partner Payne Homes, are hosting a holiday 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 beginning on Giving Tuesday, November 28, until December 31 at 2700 Old Rosebud, Suite 250, Lexington, KY 40509, or 751 Slone Drive, Suite 12, Georgetown, KY 40324.
Giving Tuesday is a global giving movement that takes place on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
“In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, I strongly encourage everyone in the community to drop by one of our offices and give a pair of shoes to help a person in need this holiday season,” said Prather.
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, Soles4Souls President and CEO. “Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone’s life.”
