Hush Puppies continues to celebrate their "50 years of Casual Style" by partnering with Soles4Souls for several multi-store events.

During the month of September, Hush Puppies and Soles4Souls will team up with local Hush Puppies retailers on September 13, 20 and 27 in the cities of Hartford, CT, Boston, MA and Portland, OR for a charity footwear drive.

All shoes donated will benefit Soles4Souls, the international charity dedicated to providing free footwear to those in desperate need worldwide.

For three consecutive weekends, customers in each chosen city will have the opportunity to donate their gently-worn shoes to those in need while enjoying a number of in-store events and promotions at the various retailers.

FootPrints in Hartford, CT will kick off the first drive on September 13th, followed the next weekend by Michelson's in Boston, MA on September 20th.

The drive concludes with Imelda's in Portland, OR on September 27th. All three locations will be partnering with a local pet adoption agency.

For the Portland drive, Hush Puppies and Soles4Souls will partner with Best Friends Animal Society. Best Friends runs the nation's largest sanctuary for abused and abandoned animals.

Best Friends works with their members and with humane groups, individuals and entire communities to set up spay/neuter, shelter, foster and adoption programs in neighborhoods, cities, and states around the country. The pet adoption partners for the Hartford and Boston events are yet to be determined.

"Hush Puppies wants to say 'thank you' to our loyal consumers during this special birthday year, and reach out to as many people as possible," says Mark Neal, global president, Hush Puppies.

"This nationwide and global initiative with Soles4Souls is our way to touch thousands of people's lives who are less fortunate. The impact that this organization has already made is astounding. We are honored to have Soles4Souls as our partner."

"Soles4Souls is proud to partner with such a socially aware and responsible company as Hush Puppies," says Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls.

"We currently give away one pair of shoes every 23 seconds. Now our global efforts will be substantially increased."
