Thanks to everyone who came out on Saturday and helped to kick-off the 2009 “Show Love With Your Soles” used shoe drive. The community response to put shoes on the feet of orphans in Haiti and the Dominican Republic was absolutely amazing!!!
Over 200 pair of shoes were collected during the kick-off … and it’s not over.
On February 23rd, students at The Atlanta Academy (Roswell GA) started collecting donations during carpool to support the campaign. Due to the overwhelming response…what started out as a week long initiative has now been extended for another full week. Bags, baskets and boxes of shoes continue to pour in. Individual and group collection efforts will continue in the Atlanta metropolitan area through March 20th.
“We’re incredibly grateful for all of the generous support of the “Show Love With Your Soles” campaign and are thrilled to know that these shoes will make a difference in the lives of children who are truly in need.” said Barenda Whitaker(Founder of Healthy Notions).
Stay tuned…more news to come.
