CROSSVILLE –Tennessee Realtor Tammy Lapp, owner/broker of Star Realty, is hosting summer shoe donation drive for Soles4Souls to help change lives through the power of a good pair of shoes.
Lapp is hosting the donation drive for Soles4Souls from June 10 to August 10 as part of the NALA’s collective cause marketing program, which encourages businesses across the country to unite for a good cause. New or gently worn pairs of shoes can be dropped off at Star Realty, 2888 Dunbar Road, Crossville, TN 38572.
“Please help us help people in need by dropping by our office and dropping off a pair of unwanted shoes,” said Lapp. “Every pair counts and can change the life of another.”
Soles4Souls is a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. Children every day are prevented from attending school and adults are unable to work as walking becomes unbearable, which perpetuates the cycle of poverty.
“Businesses and individuals that host donation drives for Soles4Souls help us fulfill our mission by providing short-term relief and long-term solutions to global poverty,” said Buddy Teaster, Soles4Souls CEO. “Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone’s life.”
