Everyone is welcome and encouraged to stop by our office during this holiday season and drop off a pair of shoes to help a person in need. The gift of just one pair of shoes can make a huge difference is someone’s life.

Gary R. Kershner is hosting a donation drive for Soles4Souls from December 2-23, 2019. New or gently worn pairs of shoes can be dropped off on the fourth floor of Oakmore Office Building at 1425 Leimert Blvd., Oakland, CA.

“Everyone is welcome and encouraged to stop by our office during this holiday season and drop off a pair of shoes to help a person in need,” said attorney Gary R. Kershner, founder of the Law Offices of Gary R. Kershner. “The gift of just one pair of shoes can make a huge difference is someone’s life.”

Soles4Souls is a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. 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 30 million pairs of shoes to those in need in 127 countries around the world and all 50 states in the U.S.

“Businesses and individuals that host donation drives for Soles4Souls help us fulfill our mission by providing short-term relief and long-term solutions to global poverty,” said Buddy Teaster, Soles4Souls CEO. “Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone’s life.”
