Dynamic Real Estate is hosting a spring shoe donation drive for Soles4Souls. New or gently worn pairs of shoes can be donated by calling Carmen Micsa, CEO and founder of Dynamic Real Estate, at (916) 342-2446 to schedule a drop-off appointment. Soles4Souls is a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing.
“When you are doing your spring cleaning keep an eye out for any shoes you no longer wear or want, from gently worn work shoes to running shoes,” said Micsa, an avid runner and tennis player who, in 2016, ran the California International Marathon. “Instead of just throwing them away, they can be donated and make a big impact on the life of a person in need.”
Soles4Souls aims 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 30 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 President and CEO. “Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone’s life.”
