The Wilson County Democratic Women at their July meeting collected new or gently used shoes to donate to Soles4Souls.
Soles4Souls is a global charity located in Old Hickory. Their mission is to fight poverty by collecting new and used shoes and clothing, then distributing the shoes and clothes directly to people in need and by provisioning qualified micro-enterprise programs. For more information, contact Soles4Souls at soles4souls.org.
This is one of a number of outreach initiatives that the Democratic Women of Wilson County sponsor. Other initiatives include donations of foodstuffs to the MJ Help Center; Homesafe, a women’s shelter serving Wilson County; book donations to the three county libraries; and donations to Brooks House.
