Woods Law KC, LLC is hosting a shoe donation drive for Soles4Souls. Soles4Souls is a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. Currently, Soles4Souls is collecting new shoes to benefit victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. New shoes can be dropped off at Woods Law KC, 218 NE Tudor Road, Lee’s Summit, MO 64086.
“We are honored to partner with Soles4Souls and help provide assistance to people who were affected by these devastating hurricanes,” said Aaron Woods, founder of Woods Law KC, LLC.
Soles4Souls 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. It continues to act as a second-wave responder providing footwear and clothing to those in need during times of disaster. 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.
“We strive to be extremely intentional when responding to disasters,” said Soles4Souls President and CEO, Buddy Teaster. “We are committed to working with invested partners on the ground and providing meaningful assistance through shoes, clothing and other necessities people need at the most appropriate time.”
