Soles4Souls is an initiative to collect shoes and donate them to those in need around the world. Soles4Souls collects new and used shoes to give relief to the victims of abject suffering and in efforts to eradicate poverty. Wearing shoes helps fight disease. The shoes have been distributed to people in over 127 countries, including Kenya, Thailand, Nepal and the United States. Roy Reuther seniors set to clean out their closets and donate shoes that they were not using anymore. The seniors collectively contributed 247 pounds of shoes. That’s a lot of shoes!!! The senior center is also in the middle of a used eyeglass collection.
