Soles4Souls shoe drives provide practical solutions to fighting poverty, and I encourage the community to not only donate a new or gently worn pair of shoes at my office, but to get involved by organizing your own shoe drive.
Riverside, CA (PRWEB) May 04, 2016
Josh Terraneau is proud to announce his State Farm office, located at 5053 La Mart Drive, Suite 103 in Riverside, is now an official Soles4Souls drop-off location where he will be collecting donated shoes. “I am honored to support this humanitarian organization in its mission to wear out poverty,” said Terraneau. “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.”
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.
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.
“Every pair of donated shoes really counts,” said Terraneau. “Soles4Souls shoe drives provide practical solutions to fighting poverty, and I encourage the community to not only donate a new or gently worn pair of shoes at my office, but to get involved by organizing your own shoe drive.”

Based in Nashville, TN, Soles4Souls is committed to the highest standards of operating and governance.
