Hiram SAAC Collects Shoes for Soles4Souls

The Hiram SAAC collected new and lightly worn shoes for Soles4Souls Inc. a non-profit organization that gives away shoes to those in need worldwide. Between September 22 and October 17, members placed collection boxes throughout Hiram’s campus and accumulated 12 boxes, or 221 pairs of shoes ranging from children to adult sizes.

Nashville-based Soles4Souls™ facilitates the donations of both new and used shoes, which are used to aid the hurting worldwide. Since its inception, Soles4Souls has distributed more than 3.3 million pairs (or one pair every 23 seconds) to people in more than 60 countries, including Honduras, Romania, Thailand, and the Sudan. The charity has been featured on CNN Headline News, NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, ABC News, FOX, CBS, and hundreds of regional outlets around North America.
