I fully espouse the Soles4Souls philosophy that ‘a new pair of shoes provides relief today so thousands can succeed tomorrow.
Mobile, AL (PRWEB) September 28, 2015
“Since it’s not cold yet and school has already started, we are going to begin a winter shoe drive,” said Brandon. “Due to the success of our initial Soles4Souls drive, we want to surpass 500 donations and try and double that.”
Soles4Souls believes everyone deserves a good pair of shoes, as each day children are prevented from attending school and adults are unable to work as walking becomes unbearable because of a lack of shoes. Since 2006, 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.
“I fully espouse the Soles4Souls philosophy that ‘a new pair of shoes provides relief today so thousands can succeed tomorrow,’” said Brandon, a soon-to-be father of a baby girl. “We are honored to be involved with this humanitarian organization that has been able to grow relationships all across the Gulf Coast and empowers future generations.”
Brandon also gave thanks to Capree House at the NALA, an organization that works with local businesses on charity drives, among other things, for her help with getting the word out. “Capree has gone above and beyond to help,” said Brandon.

Soles4Souls is a global social enterprise dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty.
