At Soles4Souls, we turn unwanted shoes and clothing into opportunity by keeping them from going to waste and putting them to good use the following ways:

1) Providing relief - Whether it’s disaster relief or supporting homeless kids, we distribute new shoes and clothing in the U.S. and around the world.

2) Fighting poverty - We help people in developing countries launch and sustain their own small businesses selling donated shoes and clothing.

3) Protecting the planet - By repurposing unwanted items and putting them to good use, we keep them out of landfills and extend their lifespan.

Bring your gently used shoes to the race! We will recycle them with Soles4Souls where they will be go into micro-enterprise programs in developing countries around the world. These programs serve as long-term opportunities to break the cycle of poverty for those in need. When the shoes arrive, they are sorted and, together with our partners, we determine where they need to be sent to make the most impact.
