Soles4Souls – Give Shoes, Give Love

Have a Heart – Give a Sole / May 18 – July 5, 2018

Penny Akashi, Silver Strand resident and Sales Partner at the Brighton store in Marina del Rey, will be collecting gently used men’s, women’s and children’s shoes for Soles4Souls from now until July 5th. Last year, Penny collected approximately 100 pairs of shoes, most of which were donated by her Silver Strand neighbors!

Brighton has partnered with Soles4Souls, a wonderful charity that collects new and gently-worn shoes (men’s, women’s and children’s) and distributes them worldwide to those who do not have access to shoes.

More than 300 million people worldwide are without a single pair of shoes – leaving them vulnerable to injuries and infections, yet every year, millions of shoes are thrown away in landfills.Soles4Souls

In 2017, Brighton collected 234,000 pairs of gently-used shoes which were donated to Soles4Souls to help children and adults in need of the simple, yet life-changing gift of a pair of shoes. To date, Brighton has collected over a million pairs of shoes.

Your shoe donation can be dropped off over the wall in front of Penny’s home at 135 Ketch Mall or you can contact Penny at penny.akashi@gmail.com and she will pick up the shoes. For more information or if you have any questions, please contact Penny at penny.akashi@gmail.com.

Thank you in advance for supporting such a worthwhile cause.
