Again this year, the Nashville-based charity, Soles4Souls™ Inc., the global organization dedicated to providing free footwear to people in need all over the world, will conduct a shoe drive at the charity softball game. Soles4Souls (www.giveshoes.org) is asking for your ‘gently worn’ shoes to make a tangible difference in someone’s life. It is estimated that Americans have 1.5 billion pairs of unworn shoes lying in their closets.
