Women4Women Shoe Drive: “Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back.”
We have banded together and joined the non-profit organization Soles4Souls to empower women in emerging nations with the opportunity to start and sustain small businesses to help them step out of poverty.
Soles4Souls is a non-profit organization that creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the globe. Their micro-enterprise program utilizes new and gently-worn shoes as a resource to help entrepreneurs generate a sustainable income for themselves and their families. The sale of just one pair of shoes can help a woman entrepreneur provide five meals for a family in places like Haiti and Honduras.
Join us and Soles4Souls and clean out your closets. The shoes you no longer want will provide many women with the opportunity they need.
From September 1- October 1, please donate your unwanted new and gently worn shoes to Charleston Shoe Co. — 472 John Ringling Blvd. St. Armands Circle, 34236—across from Foxy Lady. Bring in 2 pairs of gently worn shoes and receive 10% off your purchase, or just bring them to support a Great Cause!
Soles4Souls disrupts the cycle of poverty by creating jobs and providing relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world.
