I am encouraging the community to come by my office to donate a new pair of shoes to help the people affected by the catastrophic flooding in South Carolina.
Spanish Fort, AL (PRWEB) October 21, 2015
Lad Drago, of State Farm, is proud to announce his office, located at 7623 Spanish Fort Blvd., Spanish Fort, AL, is now an official Soles4Souls drop-off location and he will be collecting shoes for people affected by recent South Carolina flooding.
“I am honored to do my part in collecting donated shoes for this altruistic organization whose mission is to wear out poverty,” said Lad. “I am encouraging the community to come by my office to donate a new pair of shoes to help the people affected by the catastrophic flooding in South Carolina.”
Flooding has claimed the lives of at least 17 people and left tens of thousands without power or water in South Carolina. In addition to the eleven dams that have failed or been breached, more dams are expected to give way creating even more devastation. Soles4Souls is working with emergency responders to provide safe, sturdy footwear, clothing and other necessities to victims who face rebuilding their lives in South Carolina.
Lad and Soles4Souls believe everyone around the globe deserves a good pair of shoes. To fulfill its mission of wearing out 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.
“The people of South Carolina need our help,” said Lad. “By donating shoes, we can help give them a basic necessity that most of us take for granted and assist people in need in our own backyard.”

Soles4Souls, a not-for-profit global social enterprise dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty, was founded as a disaster relief organization after philanthropists and shoe executives provided footwear to those most impacted by the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004 and Hurricane Katrina in 2005. 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 via direct donations to people in need.
