BeBalanced Hormone Weight Loss Centers in Fort Wayne, whose program uses the power of hormones and natural hormone balancing to work with one’s body to correct key hormone imbalances, is now an official Soles4Souls drop-off location, and is hosting a shoe donation drive for the nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. New or gently worn pairs of shoes can be dropped off at BeBalanced, 6167 W. Jefferson Blvd., Fort Wayne, IN 46804.
“I strongly encourage everyone in the community to drop by and drop off a pair of shoes to help a person in need,” said Amber Quinn, a Fort Wayne native and owner of BeBalanced Fort Wayne, whose mother Sandi Gratz, a local Century 21 Realtor, is the BeBalanced co-owner.
Soles4Souls aims is to eradicate extreme poverty by 2050. Children every day are prevented from attending school and adults are unable to work as walking becomes unbearable, which perpetuates the cycle of poverty. To date, Soles4Souls has collected and distributed more than 30 million pairs of shoes to those in need in 127 countries around the world and all 50 states in the U.S.
“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, President and CEO of Soles4Souls. “Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone’s life.”
