Sole Purpose Sock & Shoe Drive 2019
Thank you to everyone who donated to our sock and shoe drive November 1-January 31. We had so much participation from the community and all the sock and shoe donations filled an entire van to benefit the “Interfaith Sanctuary Shelter” in Boise.
Buzz, an employee at the Interfaith shelter, said they appreciate the donations. We were able to give the shelter two large garbage bags full of new socks and over 100 shoes ranging from tennis shoes to boots for men, women, and children. Since they do not have a big need for dress shoes, Buzz suggested the dress shoes be donated to “Dress for Success” in Meridian. With your generous support, we were able to contribute four large bags full of dress boots, pumps, and sandals to their organization.
“Dress for Success” is an organization that helps women change their lives by undergoing some form of job training or skills development to re-enter the workforce. They help women from domestic violence shelters, employment and development centers, incarceration programs, welfare and unemployment recipients, and other women’s programs. “We provide clothing as a symbol of our faith in every woman’s ability to succeed.”
It will make such a difference in the life of the homeless, those in need, as well as those trying to make a new start in our community. Proper shoe and socks help so much and your donated items will be put to good use. Thank you so much for your generosity and support.
