Soles4Souls Program

Soles4Souls is an international organization that collects shoes, clothing and money for the disadvantaged throughout the world.  The donations have been distributed to 127 countries and all 50 states in the United States.  Blue Spruce Kiwanis is joining Kiwanis International collecting new or gently used shoes to help this cause.

Don’t throw away a good opportunity.

Americans throw away more than 70 pounds of textiles per person per year. The EPA estimates only 15% is donated or recycled. Since 2006 Soles4Souls has kept 42 million pounds of shoes and clothing out of landfills and instead created opportunities for people in need around the globe.

Providing hope in times of distress.

Soles4Souls was founded as a disaster relief organization after philanthropists and shoe executives provided footwear to those most impacted by The Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004 and Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Soles4Souls was officially formed as a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2006. 

Soles4Souls continues to act as second wave responders providing footwear and clothing to those In need during times of disaster.

The shoes you no longer want create opportunity many need.

The Soles4Souls micro-enterprise model provides individuals the ability to start small businesses by providing a steady supply of high-quality, low-cost product; a powerful and sustainable way for people to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.

Donate

Blue Spruce Kiwanis has set up shoe collection boxes at multiple sites in our community.  Currently these are located at Walgreens, US Bank, Salon St. Eller, the Evergreen Fire Rescue Administration Building, Evergreen National Bank, Bergen Park Plaza, Mt. Evans Hospice, Evergreen Lutheran Church, Bank of the West, and Mountain High Christian Church.  You can also donate much needed dollars via this link: https://soles4souls.networkforgood.com/projects/56250-blue-spruce-kiwanis-s-fundraiser
