Colorado RE/MAX Agent Hosts Donation Site for Soles4Soul
Giving back to society has long been a goal for RE/MAX Alliance agent Chris White, who is hosting the donation drive for Soles4Souls from May 1 to June 1. New or gently worn pairs of shoes can be dropped off at 2955 Webster Street, Wheat Ridge, CO 80033.
"I'm just trying to do something to help people," says White, who earmarks a portion of all his transactions to charitable causes. “You can help a person in need change their life for the better. Drop by our office and drop off an unwanted pair of shoes today.”
Soles4Souls is a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. Soles4Souls aim is to eradicate extreme poverty by 2050. Children every day are prevented from attending school and adults are unable to work as walking becomes unbearable, which perpetuates the cycle of poverty. To date, Soles4Souls has collected and distributed more than 35 million pairs of shoes to those in need in 127 countries around the world and all 50 states in the U.S.
“Businesses and individuals that host donation drives for Soles4Souls help us fulfill our mission by providing short-term relief and long-term solutions to global poverty,” said Buddy Teaster, Soles4Souls CEO. “Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone’s life.”
In addition to Soles4Souls, White is a proud supporter of Operation Homefront, whose mission is to build strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive — not simply struggle to get by — in the communities they have worked so hard to protect. He recently hosted a baby supplies drive for Operation Homefront’s Star-Spangled Babies program.
