Over the past three weeks we have been running a mall-wide shoe collection drive. This drive was part of our partnership with Soles4Souls, a Nashville-based non-profit organization which collects shoes for those in need. Soles4Souls accepts 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.
In addition to our goal to collect 100 pairs of shoes we also wanted to be part of the larger mission of bringing awareness to the need of more than 300 million children in the world who live every day without adequate shoes.
Collection boxes were placed throughout the mall and also at our Fit Family Day event. Thanks to the kind donations from our shoppers we collected 116 pairs of shoes. Although our collection drive is over, if you have shoes you would like to donate please visit http://www.soles4souls.org/ for a list of drop-off locations in the area.
Thank you to all who donated shoes to this terrific cause!
