“A new pair of shoes can have a big impact on the life of a person in need,” said Barru, who was recently inducted into the RE/MAX Hall of Fame. “Please help us help people in need by donating a pair of unwanted shoes.”

Soles4Souls is a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. Soles4Souls aim is to eradicate extreme poverty by 2050.

“Businesses and individuals that host donation drives for Soles4Souls help us fulfill our mission by providing short-term relief and long-term solutions to global poverty,” said Buddy Teaster, Soles4Souls CEO. “Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone’s life.”
