Local “Soles4souls” drive starts Tuesday

Patrons of one local shoe store who donate to a global shoe drive starting Tuesday to help the impoverished can receive a discount on their purchase.

Beginning Tuesday and continuing through Dec. 9, Shoe Sensation, 1730 S. Main St., collects donations for “Soles4souls,” a global relief effort dedicated to providing footwear to the less fortunate. Any customer who donates $1 or more between Dec. 3 and 9 receives 10 percent off a single purchase at the store.

Money raised is dedicated to support the charity’s relief effort, according to a release, which goes on to note that one-in-four adults in the world live on less than a dollar per day and basic necessities like shoes are not readily available.
