Flynn Financial Partners collecting shoes to help Soles4Souls in fight against global poverty
New Rochelle, NY – Attention anyone with a closet: Those shoes you no longer want are desperately needed to fight the human tragedy of global poverty.
Flynn Financial Partners has embarked on an exciting project with Soles4Souls –a non-profit that creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world. Founded in 2006, the organization has distributed more than 30 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries.
Our company has recently registered as a drop-off location to help them on their mission. Both used and new shoes can be dropped off at our office (location and hours detailed below), and we will then ship them to Soles4Souls for distribution to those in need.
How it Works
Soles4Souls will convert every used pair of shoes collected from the community into a value-added social currency to achieve positive change, both humanitarian and economic. Most of the gently used shoes will be distributed to microenterprise programs that create jobs in Haiti and other poor nations. The resulting revenue will help fund the free distribution of new shoes in the U.S., Canada and developing nations around the world.
The connection between poverty and shoes is well documented. The World Bank estimates that approximately 400 million children worldwide – more than the entire U.S. population – live in pronounced poverty. Millions of these children don’t have access to adequate footwear resulting in significant ramifications for their health and well-being. Lacking proper footwear, countless children will not be able or permitted to attend school. And tens of millions of these poverty-stricken, barefoot boys and girls will be infected with soil-transmitted parasitic diseases like hookworm, causing lasting suffering and lifelong debilitation.
“The simple truth is that almost anyone with a closet has shoes they don’t wear, or an old pair that will just end up in a landfill. Give those to us, and know that you are taking a step to making the world a better place for all of us.”
