State Farm Agent Janna Misek is proud to announce her office, located at 1136 Douglas Road, Oswego, IL, is hosting a holiday donation drive for Soles4Souls, where she will be collecting donated shoes from October 24 to December 19. “I strongly encourage everyone in the community to drop by my office and drop off a new or gently worn pair of shoes to help Soles4Souls fight poverty,” said Misek.
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 Misek. “Every person in the world should have at least one good pair of shoes.”
