We’re pleased to partner with Soles4Souls in helping provide assistance to those most directly impacted by Hurricane Irma. Our entire Levine Benjamin family is eager to help.
Detroit, MI (PRWEB) September 15, 2017
The Levine Benjamin Law Firm is hosting a month-long shoe donation drive for Soles4Souls, a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing, to benefit victims of Hurricane Irma. Brand new shoes can be dropped of at the Levine Benjamin Law Firm, 100 Galleria Officentre, Suite 411, Southfield, MI.
“After representing disabled individuals for 25 years, we recognize the urgency to give back when people are in need. This is a basic human need,” said Joseph E. Houle, managing partner of Levine Benjamin Law Firm.
Added managing partner Gary W Bimberg, “We’re pleased to partner with Soles4Souls in helping provide assistance to those most directly impacted by Hurricane Irma. Our entire Levine Benjamin family is eager to help.”
Soles4Souls 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. It continues to act as second-wave responders providing footwear and clothing to those in need during times of disaster. 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.
“We strive to be extremely intentional when responding to disasters,” said Soles4Souls President and CEO, Buddy Teaster. “We are committed to working with invested partners on the ground and providing meaningful assistance through shoes, clothing and other necessities people need at the most appropriate time.”
