Soles4Souls Helps Communities and the Environment

  1. 1.  Shoes for Crews manufactures a diverse line of footwear that combines safety features, like slip-resistant outsoles and steel toes, with style, comfort, and durability. In addition to protecting customers from falls and other workplace accidents, Shoes for Crews contributes to Soles4Souls, a nonprofit organization that fights poverty by donating new and used shoes and clothing to underprivileged communities worldwide.
  2. 2.  While Soles4Souls works closely with apparel companies that donate new products, the organization also emphasizes the importance of donating used articles of clothing as a way to help both people and the environment. Soles4Souls notes that every year Americans discard more than 700,000 tons of reusable apparel. Donating used shoes and clothes keeps these items out of landfills, where they can break down and release harmful toxins into the soil and water. People can donate unwanted shoes at one of the organization’s blue bins or participating drop-off locations. Since 2006, Soles4Souls has distributed more than 19 million pairs of shoes around the world.
