I strongly encourage everyone in the community to drop by my office and give a pair of shoes to help a person in need this holiday season.
Memphis, TN (PRWEB) November 18, 2016
Kacky Kortenber of State Farm is proud to announce her office is hosting a holiday shoe 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 Kacky Kortenber State Farm, 7900 Winchester Road, Suite 101, Memphis, TN. “I strongly encourage everyone in the community to drop by my office and give a pair of shoes to help a person in need this holiday season,” said Kacky, whose office has been an official Soles4Souls drop-off location since 2014.
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 Kacky, who last December added 1,500 pairs of shoes to the 2,000 collected by fellow State Farm Agent Brandon Shreves, which were all delivered to Soles4Souls headquarters in Nashville. “Every person in the world should have at least one good pair of shoes, and you can help make that happen.”

Based in Nashville, TN, Soles4Souls is committed to the highest standards of operating and governance and holds a four-star rating with Charity Navigator.
