For several months, NAPO Ohio members have been organizing shoe collection drives to benefits the Souls 4 Soles program.
When we first arrived, it was just like any other organizing project -- where to start?!
Members - Ellen Limes, Andi Smith, Julie Riber, Karen Kruzan, Birdie Brennan, and Terry Cowans - picked a pile to sort, bind, and pack the shoes in boxes for shipment to Soles 4 Souls.
The garage that started out filled with bags, boxes and piles of shoes! With a great team effort, the shoes were bagged, tagged and ready to go in just two hours!
Soles4Souls is a Nashville-based charity that collects shoes from the warehouses of footwear companies and the closets of people like you.
Soles4Souls facilitates the donations of shoes, which are used to aid the hurting worldwide. Shoe companies, retailers, and individuals can donate footwear (both new and used).
Soles4Souls has a simple concept: they procure shoes and get them to those in need.
NAPO is excited to work with this company in a joint venture to de-clutter closets and donate shoes to those in need.
We stopped collecting shoes December 1, 2011. With your help, NAPO-Ohio collected over 4000 pairs of shoes. Countrywide, NAPO collected over 77,000 pairs of shoes. Thank you for your support.
