Soles 4Souls Drive This Saturday

| March 21, 2011 | 0 Comments

Soles4Souls Inc. has committed to collect and distribute 11 million shoes in 2011 to people living in extreme poverty and recovering from natural disasters through its “11 IN 11” campaign. The shoe charity gives away one pair of shoes to a person in need every 7 seconds. Since 2005, Soles4Souls has distributed more than 12 million pairs of shoes because of the generosity and commitment of people and organizations like the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Omicron Gamma Omega Chapter in Glen Burnie, Maryland.

On Saturday March 26th from 11am to 1pm,  Soles4Souls and the Omicron Gamma Omega Chapter Emerging Young Leaders will be collecting your gently worn footwear and/or donations to make a tangible difference through the gift of shoes. Every donation will support the charity’s initiative to distribute 11 million pairs of shoes in 2011.

(shoe drive located on lower court level between Forever21 & Justice)
