Soles4Souls receives donated shoes from The Mall at Voorhees
May '08
Soles4Souls, the international shoe charity dedicated to changing the world with the gift of shoes, often receives large donations from footwear companies, schools, and churches.

But one of the largest donations recently came from a mall in Voorhees, New Jersey -- The Mall at Voorhees Town Center, a shopping center owned and managed by Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust.

Nearly 11,000 shoes were compiled during the creative shoe drive, which encouraged community members to "Step into the Future" of something new and exciting with the renovation of the mall.

Mall organizers felt it was appropriate to help those hurting worldwide and in need of footwear for their everyday steps. There was also a children's art contest that ran concurrently, and prizes were awarded to the winners.

Some of the companies and schools that participated in making the event a great success were Boscov's, Clementon School, E.T. Hamilton School, Harrington Middle School, Italian Treasures, and IMC Construction.

"The mall's initial goal was to collect 6,000 pairs of shoes for Soles4Souls; with the overwhelming response from the community, we almost doubled the amount of donations," said Lori L. Anzivino, Marketing Director of The Mall at Voorhees Town Center.

"We were also able to secure a local trucking company, Wayne Moving & Storage out of West Chester, PA, to donate their time to deliver the shoe donations to the distribution in Concord, VA."
