Her dedication to this cause is incredible, and was a huge help for us in adding to our already growing number of shoes that we had donated by other people. A huge thank you to everyone that has donated shoes to this cause over the past year.
Eugene, OR (PRWEB) January 25, 2017
Realtor Tyler Head and Turning Point Realty Group during a recent donation drive for Soles4Souls collected 400 pairs of shoes, with the help from a local girl in the community who had been collecting shoes for years and donated 200 pairs. “I was completely shocked when this young lady showed up at our office with ten large moving boxes full of shoes that she had been collecting over the past several years,” said Tyler, Owner/Principal Broker of Turning Point Realty Group. “Her dedication to this cause is incredible, and was a huge help for us in adding to our already growing number of shoes that we had donated by other people. A huge thank you to everyone that has donated shoes to this cause over the past year.”
Soles4Souls aims is 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 26 million pairs of shoes to those in need in 127 countries around the world and all 50 states in the U.S.
“Shoes collected by businesses and individuals enable people in need around the world to lift themselves and their families out of poverty,” said Buddy Teaster, President and CEO of Soles4Souls. “Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone’s life.”
