Ion Real Estate is hosting a shoe donation drive for Soles4Souls, 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 Ion Real Estate, 2049 Larimer Street, Denver, CO 80205, through the end of the year.
“It is a privilege to partner with Soles4Souls and help provide assistance to people who were affected by these devastating hurricanes,” said Jim Cavoto, managing broker of Ion Real Estate.
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.”

Soles4Souls disrupts the cycle of poverty by creating sustainable jobs and providing relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world. Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, the organization repurposes product to supply its micro-enterprise, disaster relief and direct assistance programs. Since 2006, it has distributed more than 30 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries. A nonprofit social enterprise, Soles4Souls earns more than half of its income and commits 100% of donations to programs.
