RE/MAX Properties, Inc. Realtor Michelle Fisher is hosting a donation drive for Soles4Souls, a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing, to benefit victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Michelle will be accepting athletic shoes for all ages, men’s and women’s work-appropriate footwear, rain boots and attire, warm weather apparel, diapers, socks and underwear. Donated items can be dropped off at 1740 Chapel Hills Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80920.
“The devastation is so unbelievably heartbreaking and I pray together we can make an impact/difference for those affected by these two hurricanes,” said Michelle.
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 second-wave responders 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. A nonprofit social enterprise, Soles4Souls earns more than half of its income and commits 100% of donations to programs.
