“This is an outstanding organization whose mission is to ‘wear out poverty,’ and hosting shoe drives provides a practical solution to fighting poverty,” said Tish. “That is why I will be collecting shoes at our four offices. My goal is to collect 3,000 pairs of shoes before Christmas.”
Tish is encouraging her clients as well as the community to donate a pair of shoes (new or gently worn) to help those not only abroad, but in the United States. 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.
“I fully espouse the Soles4Souls philosophy that 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 due to of a lack of shoes,” said Tish. “Can you imagine what a difference we can make in the lives of others if each family in the community donated just one pair of shoes?”
Century 21 Meyer Real Estate will be collecting shoes at its 1585 Gulf Shores Parkway, Gulf Shores, AL, 30362 State Highway 181, Spanish Fort, AL, 1929 Hoover Court, Birmingham, AL, and 13700 Perdido Key Drive, Suite 125, Pensacola, FL, offices.

Soles4Souls is a global social enterprise dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty. The organization advances its anti-poverty mission by collecting new and used shoes and clothes from individuals, schools, faith-based institutions, civic organizations and corporate partners, then distributes those shoes and clothes both via direct donations to people in need and by provisioning qualified microenterprise programs designed to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities.
