“I hope to inspire people to not only donate for Easter but to get involved by organizing their own Soles4Souls shoe drive and help wear out poverty.
Murfreesboro, TN (PRWEB) March 03, 2016
Celeste Middleton’s State Farm office, located at 803 N. Thompson Lane, Suite 102 B, Murfreesboro, TN, is an official drop-off location for Soles4Souls where she is collecting new and gently worn shoes for people in need. “I want to encourage the public to help in the collection of shoes so that we can send them before Easter,” said Celeste. “Everyone deserves a good pair of shoes, as each day children around the world are prevented from attending school and adults are unable to work as walking becomes unbearable due to a lack of shoes.”
The vision of Soles4Souls is to eradicate extreme poverty by 2050. To achieve this goal, Soles4Souls monetizes used shoes and clothing to create sustainable jobs, as well as fund direct relief efforts, which include distribution of new shoes and clothing throughout the world. To date, Soles4Souls has collected and distributed more than 26 million pairs of shoes to people in need in 127 countries around the world and all 50 states in the U.S.
“Every pair of donated shoes counts, and creates a sustainable way for people to lift themselves and their families out of poverty,” said Celeste. “I hope to inspire people to not only donate for Easter but to get involved by organizing their own Soles4Souls shoe drive and help wear out poverty.”
