We are honored to partner with Soles4Souls and are grateful that our clients, such as Brandon and Kacky, are making major impacts on the lives of the impoverished.

Brandon, Angie and Capree began their journey in Mobile on Tuesday, December 8, and stopped in Memphis on December 10 to pick up more shoes from Kacky Kortenber, a fellow State Farm agent. They eventually delivered approximately 3,500 pairs of shoes to Soles4Souls on Friday, December 11, in Nashville.

“Our businesses are proudly joining the fight against poverty by giving their communities a place to donate new or gently worn shoes to Soles4Souls,” said Jeffrey Rosenthal, Chairman and CEO of the NALA. “We are honored to partner with Soles4Souls and are grateful that our clients, such as Brandon and Kacky, are making major impacts on the lives of the impoverished.”

Brandon’s office collected more than 2,000 pairs of shoes during his recent drive for Soles4Souls. He later met up with Kacky in Memphis for a donation pick up of more than 1,500 shoes to deliver them in person to Soles4Souls – just in time for the holidays.

“The NALA’s clients have made a huge difference to Soles4Souls and thousands of people around the globe. Business leaders like Brandon, Kacky and Capree show how one company can use their businesses to benefit both local communities and in places all around the world. We appreciate all that they’re doing to help “wear out poverty," said Soles4Souls President and CEO, Buddy Teaster.

“As business owners, we are looking to make a difference, not just in our own communities, but around the world,” said Brandon. Added Kacky, “Each day around the globe, children are prevented from attending school and adults are unable to work as walking becomes unbearable due to a lack of shoes, but a donated pair of shoes can go a long way in helping them have a better tomorrow.”
