The Rogers Community Network is teaming up with Soles4Souls again this year to help provide essential footwear to those in need. In 2011, Rogers donated over 400 pairs of shoes to the cause and this year we hope to exceed that milestone!
Do you have a pair of new or gently worn shoes ready for a new home? Consider donating them to a great cause. Soles4Souls accepts all types of footwear including athletic shoes, running sneakers, sandals, high heels, work boots and more.
Where will your shoes go? Every year, Soles4Souls helps communities recuperating from natural disasters such as the recent devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma. Footwear is also sent to orphanages, homeless shelters, women’s domestic abuse shelters, hospitals and more.
Founded in 2004 by Wayne Elsey, Soles4Souls is a global not-for-profit institution dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty through the distribution of shoes and clothing.
Can you imagine a day without shoes, protecting us from the elements, dangerous disease and injury? For many around the world, walking is the only means of transportation and without proper footwear, this daily trek can pose hazardous challenges.
We are told that the best way to understand how others live is to take a walk in their shoes. But what better way to help our community and those around the world than to let them take a walk in ours? Let’s help Soles4Souls take another step toward helping those in need!
