Donations directly help people in need who otherwise do not have the means to purchase their own shoes, but a donated pair of shoes can go a long way in helping those in need have a happy holiday.
Hemet, CA (PRWEB) December 08, 2015
“In the spirit of the season, I will be spearheading a donation drive for Soles4Souls and strongly encourage everyone to donate a new or gently worn pair of shoes,” said Gerrold. “Donations directly help people in need who otherwise do not have the means to purchase their own shoes, but a donated pair of shoes can go a long way in helping those in need have a happy holiday.”
Gerrold will be accepting donations for Soles4Souls at both his 2129 E. Florida Ave., Hemet and 23470 Olivewood Plaza Drive, Suite 250, Moreno Valley, CA locations. Soles4Souls believes everyone deserves a good pair of shoes, as children each day around the globe are prevented from attending school and adults are unable to work as walking becomes unbearable because of a lack of shoes. Since 2006, 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.
“I fully embrace the Soles4Souls philosophy that ‘a new pair of shoes provides relief today so thousands can succeed tomorrow,’” said Gerrold. “I am honored to be involved with this humanitarian organization during this season synonymous with giving.”

Soles4Souls is a global social enterprise dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty. The organization advances its anti-poverty mission by collecting new and used shoes and clothes from individuals, schools, faith-based institutions, civic organizations and corporate partners, then distributes those shoes and clothes both via direct donations to people in need and by provisioning qualified microenterprise programs designed to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities.
