Ryan Dillon Properties is hosting a 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 1221 S. Clarkson Street, Denver, CO 80210. In the lobby of the building there will be a couple of donation boxes from January 15-March 1.
“I strongly encourage everyone in the community to drop by and drop off a pair of shoes to help a person in need,” said Ryan Dillon. “We especially need athletic shoes for kids in the Denver parks and Recreation youth sports leagues.”
Due to Dillon’s strong ties to the community and degree in Sports Marketing, as well as being an athlete himself and growing up playing sports in Denver, it is important for him that everyone has this same opportunity despite their access to footwear. For those who are not able to swing by the office to drop shoes off in person, Dillon is happy to pick up them up, or you can go online and make a direct monetary donation. The goal of the drive is $2,500 in online donations and 250 pairs of shoes.To donate, please visit https://soles4souls.networkforgood.com/projects/44920-ryan-dillon-properties-fundraising-kick-off.
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.”
