As part of the Cavaliers 2012 Green Week efforts, we are teaming up with Soles4Souls to collect and reuse your shoes! Show your support by bringing in new and gently used shoes (any size, any style) to the Cavaliers home games on Tuesday, April 10th and Wednesday, April 11th.
What is Soles4Souls?
Soles4Souls is a non-profit organization that collects new shoes to give relief to the victims of abject suffering and collects used shoes to support micro-business efforts to eradicate poverty.
Since its inception, Soles4Souls has distributed over 17 million pairs of shoes to people in 127 countries.
In addition to their mission of providing shoes to those in need, Soles4Souls also helps to reduce the strain on our environment by reducing the number of shoes that American throw away (over 300 million pairs last year alone), which often end up in landfills and break down, releasing the toxic glue that holds the shoes together into our water supply and atmosphere.
Where can I donate?
You can donate new and gently used shoes at Cavaliers’ home games on Tuesday, April 10th and Wednesday, April 11th. You can also donate shoes from April 9th—13th at Knuth’s two locations in Pepper Pike and Westlake (www.myknuths.com).
We can change the world, one pair at a time. The gift of shoes is a simple yet profound way to benefit people in need while helping the environment at the same time.
