Nashville, TN (CNS) – People across the country can now donate gently worn shoes to help those in need, while also getting a discount for a new pair of boots.
The shoe retailer Bakers is recognizing National Boot Week by inviting consumers to drop off the shoes to be donated to Soles4Souls and giving out a 10% discount for new boots. Bakers has 222 stores across the country that will participate starting October 4 through October 13.
“Soles4Souls is a wonderful organization that brings humanity and help to the world with a generosity of spirit and significant footwear donations. They touch millions of lives worldwide and Bakers is thrilled to assist their efforts by giving our customers the opportunity to show their support for those in need. Forgotten shoes just sitting in closets all over the United States are someone else’s dream come true.” said Peter Edison Chairman and CEO of Bakers Footwear Group.
Soles4Souls gives away a new pair of shoes every 9 seconds and helps those in need, whether they are victims of a natural disaster or subject to living in extreme poverty.
“We are happy to be partnering with Bakers during their National Boot Week campaign,” said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls, Inc. “Bakers really understands the overwhelming need for something as simple as shoes and what a difference even one pair can make in an individual’s life,” he said.
