This humanitarian organization provides shoes to people who need them the most, and we can make a difference one pair at a time. A new pair of shoes can make a huge impact to a person in need.

The Deevy Group is hosting the donation drive for Soles4Souls from now until December 1, 2019. New or gently worn pairs of shoes can be dropped off at 6849 Old Dominion Drive, Suite 400, McLean, VA.

“This humanitarian organization provides shoes to people who need them the most, and we can make a difference one pair at a time,” said Deevy, founder of the Deevy Group, who also coaches a softball team for 8-10 year olds. “A new pair of shoes can make a huge impact to a person in need.”

Soles4Souls is a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. 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 30 million pairs of shoes to those in need in 127 countries around the world and all 50 states in the U.S.

“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.”
