I strongly encourage everyone in the community to drop by my office and drop off a pair of shoes to help a person in need.
Memphis, TN (PRWEB) January 24, 2017
Kacky Kortenber of State Farm is spearheading a shoe donation drive for Soles4Souls. 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 drop off a pair of shoes to help a person in need,” said Kacky, whose office has been an official Soles4Souls drop-off location since 2014. “Every pair of donated shoes counts, and can provide relief today so thousands can succeed tomorrow.”
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.
“Shoes collected by businesses and individuals enable people in need around the world to lift themselves and their families out of poverty,” said Buddy Teaster, President and CEO of Soles4Souls. “Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone’s life.”
