Tom Elam, owner of Elam Pools and Spas, located at 307 Westtown Road, West Chester, PA, is proud to announce that the family owned and operated business is now also an official Soles4Souls drop-off location. Soles4Souls is a global social enterprise institution committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing.
“Our goal is to gather one thousand pairs of shoes to donate by Labor Day,” said Tom, who, with his son Kyle, runs Elam Pools and Spas. “Kyle and I are encouraging the community to come out and donate any new or used pair of shoes to help support this worthy cause and change the lives of people in need.”
Soles4Souls, whose mission is to eradicate extreme poverty by 2050, believes everyone around the world deserves a good pair of shoes. It 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. Soles4Souls was officially formed as a non-profit in 2006, and continues to act as second-wave responders providing footwear and clothing to those in need during times of disaster.
“This extraordinary, altruistic organization has collected and distributed more than 22 million pairs of shoes to those in need in 127 countries around the world and all 50 states in America,” said Tom. “We are proud to do our part to help provide the relief that a pair of shoes can bring to a child that is prevented from going to school because he or she does not have any shoes or an adult who is unable to work for the same reason.”
