Haynesworth to Host Shoe Drive, Sign Autographs June 24th

Most of us have lots of shoes we no longer wear. According to one estimate, more than one billion pair of shoes lay idle in American closets. Yet there are millions of people both here in the United States and around the world in desperate need of footwear.

That’s why Albert Haynesworth and Shoe Carnival are teaming up with Soles4Souls, the international charity dedicated to providing free footwear to people in desperate need, providing a basic, yet indispensable gift that most of us take for granted — the gift of shoes.

The All-Pro defensive tackle will be on-hand at Shoe Carnival (Cool Springs Galleria, 7085 Bakers Bridge Avenue, Franklin, TN, 37067) on Tuesday, June 24 from 3-7 p.m. to sign one autograph for each pair of new or “gently worn” shoes that are donated to Soles4Souls. New shoes will be available in select styles and clearance priced starting at $5 at the Cool Springs Shoe Carnival.

Haynesworth hosted a signing earlier this year at Shoe Carnival that drew over 500 fans. He is hoping even more fans will come out to join him for this worthy cause.

“The last signing had a wonderful turnout, so I thought it would be a great idea to give back to a worthy cause like Soles4Souls at the same time,” said Haynesworth. “I know that fans will clean out their closets and keep me very busy signing autographs all day.”

“We are happy to offer Shoe Carnival customers the opportunity to meet Albert and donate their shoes to Soles4Souls,” said Steve Meyer, Senior Vice President of Store Operations. “Soles4Souls’ mission to provide shoes for those in need is a message that resonates with our customers. We hope this will be a memorable experience for everyone involved.”

“We are thrilled that Albert and Shoe Carnival have chosen to partner with Soles4Souls,” said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls. “The shoes donated by Albert’s fans will make a huge impact on the lives of thousands of people in desperate need.”
