Following the success of last year's Reuse-a-Shoe campaign in conjunction with Nike, Inc., Spring Hill College is now collecting used shoes of all types in support of Soles4Souls.
Soles4Souls will accept all types of shoes: athletic, running, dress, sandals, pumps, heels, work boots, cleats, dance, flip flops, just as long as they are new or gently worn. They will even accept single shoes missing their partner.
Soles4Souls is a Nashville-based charity that collects shoes from warehouses of footwear companies and the closets of America. The charity distributes these shoes to people in need, regardless of race, religion, class, or any other criteria. Since 2005, Soles4Souls has delivered over 19 million pairs of new and gently worn shoes.
The shoes have been distributed to people in over 125 countries, including Kenya, Thailand, Nepal and the United States. Soles4Souls has been featured in Runner's World, Ladies' Home Journal, National Geographic's Green Guide, and The New York Times. It has appeared on CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, BBC, CNN and thousands of regional news outlets across North America.
To donate, drop off your shoes at the box located in the lobby of the Arthur R. Outlaw Recreation Center on the SHC campus.
