Soles4Souls Shoe Drive

EPISCOPAL CONGREGATIONS OF POTTER COUNTY
HELP THOSE IN NEED WITH A SHOE DRIVE TO
BENEFIT SOLES4SOULS® INC, THE SHOE CHARITY,
AT CHRIST CHURCH COUDERSPORT AND ALL SAINTS BROOKLAND DURING THE MONTH OF JULY 2011


Potter County residents are invited to recycle their 'gently worn' shoes in an effort to help distribute shoes to people in need

Nashville, TN – June 23, 2011 – Soles4Souls Inc. has committed to collect and distribute shoes to people living in extreme poverty and recovering from natural disasters. The shoe charity provides one pair of shoes to a person in need every 7 seconds. Since 2005, Soles4Souls has distributed more than 13 million pairs of shoes because of the generosity and commitment of people and organizations like the Episcopal Congregations of Potter County, Christ Church Coudersport and All Saints Brookland.

Soles4Souls believes partners like the Episcopal Congregations of Potter County will challenge others to become a force of change by helping the charity cater to the evolving needs of the global community. The shoe charity recognizes its success is the result of individuals and industry partners such as Episcopal Congregations of Potter County who clean out closets and warehouses so that individuals around the world can have a better life through American’s excess.

Soles4Souls and the Episcopal Congregations of Potter County will be collecting your new or gently worn footwear and/or donations to make a tangible difference through the gift of shoes. Every donation will support the charity’s initiative to distribute shoes to those in need.

“With tragedies such as the earthquakes in countries like Haiti and Japan, on top of the enormous needs elsewhere, we can use the estimated 1.5 billion shoes taking up space in the closets of ordinary people to change the world one pair at a time,” said Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls, Wayne Elsey.

Elsey added, “We need partners like the Episcopal Congregations of Potter County to get behind Soles4Souls. Donating shoes is one of the most simple yet profound acts you can do, because it will greatly improve someone’s life in the most difficult of times.”

During the month of July your gently worn shoes or your financial donation can be taken to Christ Church in Coudersport or All Saints Church in Brookland. At Christ Church, the donation box will be located in the entrance to Parish Hall, the doors will be open at all times for your convenience. At All Saints, the donation box will be located in the Church which is open on Sundays for services. Your financial support will help defray the costs of shipping the donated shoes to Soles4Souls for distribution. You may mail financial donations for this purpose to Church Offices at P O Box 52, Coudersport, PA 16915.

People and companies interested in donating directly can visit the organization’s website at www.giveshoes.org.
