Rick Culp, of RE/MAX Southeast, is hosting a summer shoe donation drive for Soles4Souls. New or gently worn pairs of shoes can be dropped off at the RE/MAX Southeast office, 7555 E. Hampden Avenue, Suite 103, Denver, CO.
Soles4Souls is a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. “Instead of throwing unwanted shoes away, you can donate them to help a person in need,” said Richard Culp, broker associate at RE/MAX Southeast.
Soles4Souls aims is to eradicate extreme poverty by 2050. 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 President and CEO. “Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone’s life.”
