McKennon Law Group PC, a top law firm that represents policyholders in their insurance disputes with insurers, is hosting a summer shoe donation drive in honor of Soles4Souls’ “Go Green” initiative. New or gently worn pairs of shoes can be dropped off at 20321 SW Birch Street, Suite 200, Newport Beach, CA.
Since 2006, Soles4Souls has diverted 23.8 million pounds of shoes and clothes from landfills and instead created meaningful economic opportunities and helped provide new shoes for those in need around the globe. “Donating unwanted shoes not only helps people in need, but helps sustain the Earth. I am proud to assist this great organization in its laudable mission,” said Robert J. McKennon, founder of McKennon Law Group PC.
Soles4Souls aims 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 30 million pairs of shoes to those in need in 127 countries around the world and all 50 states in the U.S.
“Businesses and individuals that host donation drives for Soles4Souls help us fulfill our mission by providing short-term relief and long-term solutions to global poverty,” said Buddy Teaster, Soles4Souls President and CEO. “Your used shoes act as a resource to help entrepreneurs in developing nations start and sustain small businesses to help themselves and their families step out of poverty.”
