ShoeMall.com, a division of Mason Companies, Inc. is proud to be a continuing supporter of the Soles4Souls organization. That is a big reason why we were so honored to hear that the S4S RV would be making a pit stop here in Chippewa Falls, WI at our corporate office. Yesterday afternoon, the Soles4Souls’ 34-foot blue RV that is plastered with corporate logos rolled into our parking lot to honor us for our continued support.
Allan and Silvana Clark began their Soles4Souls RV journey back in March 2009. In traveling across the country, they stop in cities just like ours meeting people who support S4S. In the beginning of their journey their hope was that this tour would raise an awareness of the number of people around the world that need shoes. They also want to show people how they can make a difference in the world by donating their gently used shoes. While they were here they mentioned that they had logged 37,000 miles just in 2009 alone! You can follow them on their journey by reading their Soles4Souls RV Tour Blog.
According to the official Soles4Souls website, Soles4Souls is a Nashville-based charity that collects shoes from the warehouses of footwear companies and the closets of people like you. The charity distributes these shoes free of charge to people in need, regardless of race, religion, class, or any other criteria. Since 2005, Soles4Souls has given away over 10 million pairs of new and gently worn shoes (currently donating one pair every 9 seconds.) Want to help out? Donate here.
