Soles4Souls is a global nonprofit dedicated to fighting poverty through the distribution of new and used shoes and clothing. Since the Nashville, Tennessee based organization’s beginning, according to its website, Soles4Souls has distributed more than 22 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries. “I am excited about our plans to partner with Soles4Souls and what better way to do it than with a summer flip-flop drive,” said Brandon T. Shreves. “Come by and bring your flip-flop donation anytime to the office Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.”
Licensed in Alabama and Mississippi, Brandon is celebrating his first year in business this July. He was also recently named one of the "50 Most Beautiful People" in Access Magazine’s Summer Issue for Mobile and Baldwin counties and he has qualified for “50 Most Beautiful” for the state of Alabama.
Shreves believes in giving back to the community, a need which has only gotten stronger since being hit by a drunk driver two years ago. “I was lucky to survive,” Shreves stressed, before adding, “Life is precious, and doing what I can to help others is something I’m committed to doing.”
Active in his community, Shreves and his dedicated team enjoy participating in events such as The Fallen Heroes Run and Memorial, the Blessing of the Fleet in Bayou La Batre, as well as other local area motorcycle rides and golf tournaments raising money for the Harrison Leff Foundation and the http://www.havenforanimals.org/. He has also partnered with Home Depot and other area businesses to promote hurricane awareness and fire safety within the community. For the past 3 years he has actively promoted “Team Meanie” with the cystic fibrosis foundation.
Brandon and his team recently began working with Jacob’s Color Link Initiative. “This is a wonderful charity that is literally saving lives every day,” Brandon commented. The charity’s goal is to help children, teens and adults of Haiti with special needs to be completely self-sufficient and prosper in society. The Jacob’s Color Link Initiative has an orphanage in Haiti that is funded entirely by the charity. Brandon said, “Our goal is to be as supportive of this charity as possible, in hopes of attending the work camp each July and to be a part of changing lives and seeing the growth that can only come with the help of others.”
He went on to say, “I love helping and being involved. Soles4Souls, is a wonderful organization that I am proud to be working with. As the seasons change, we will be announcing what type of shoes are needed.”
