The holidays are a time of giving, and I am encouraging everyone in the community to drop by my office and embrace the spirit of giving by donating a pair of shoes to help a person in need.
Hemet, CA (PRWEB) November 10, 2016
Gerrold Burk, an Allstate agent, is proud to announce he will be hosting his second annual holiday shoe 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 Gerrold Burk Allstate, located at 2129 E. Florida Ave., Hemet, CA, and at 23470 Olivewood Plaza Drive, Suite 250, Moreno Valley CA.
“The holidays are a time of giving, and I am encouraging everyone in the community to drop by my office and embrace the spirit of giving by donating a pair of shoes to help a person in need,” said Burk.
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 26 million pairs of shoes to those in need in 127 countries around the world and all 50 states in the U.S.
“Every pair of donated shoes counts, and can provide relief today so thousands can succeed tomorrow,” concluded Burk. “Every person in the world should have at least one good pair of shoes, and you can help make that happen.”
