ERA Sunrise Realty is now an official Soles4Souls drop-off location. ERA will be collecting donated shoes at its various office locations, including 157 Reinhardt College Parkway, Canton, GA 30114; 1642 Powers Ferry Road, Suite 150, Marietta, GA 30067; 115 West Washington Street, Athens, GA 30601; and 104 Warren Road, Augusta, GA 30907. Furthermore, ERA Sunrise Realty will be collecting shoes for Soles4Souls, a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing, at all of its open house locations during weekends in September for children in need going back to school.
“ERA Sunrise Realty wants to ensure that children going back to school will have adequate shoes as the weather gets colder,” said Greg Martin, president of ERA Sunrise Realty. “This basic necessity will allow kids to complete their studies without being chided by their peers.”
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.
“With the help of businesses and individuals that host donation drives, we can provide a life-changing solution: a good pair of shoes,” 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.”
