HSC Collects 812 Pairs of Shoes for Haiti
Hollywood Storage Center collected 812 pairs of shoes to support Soles4Souls’ commitment to donate more than
1.3 Million pairs of shoes to victims of the earthquake in Haiti. All donations will directly support relief efforts.
Soles4Souls has partnered with organizations on the ground in Haiti to transport and distribute the aide. More than 60,000 pairs of shoes, including work boots, rain boots, children’s athletic shoes and clothing items, have already been distributed in affected areas.
“As we struggle to comprehend the magnitude of this disaster, we cannot forget how important basic necessities – such as shoes – will be in the ongoing rescue and rebuilding efforts,” said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls. “We deeply appreciate the support of Hollywood Storage Center and their customers in helping us provide shoes to survivors and volunteers as they work in horrific conditions.”
