This basketball season, Moraga is proud to support Campolindo girls basketball and its efforts to support Soles4Souls shoe drive. It demonstrates the character of these young women and the integrity of the program beyond the court.
Soles4Souls aims to turn unwanted shoes into opportunities, by keeping shoes from going to waste and putting them to good use - providing relief, creating jobs, and empowering people to break the cycle of poverty.
"Research shows that with good shoes, kids are more healthy, attend school more often, and are more confident. Having a good pair of shoes that fit right and look good not only boosts a child's confidence, it also removes one of the most visible signs of poverty," says Bill Flitter, head coach, Campolindo Girls Basketball.
Soles4Souls creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world.
Coach Flitter adds, "Most of us can't imagine what it's like not to have something as basic as a pair of shoes, but millions of people around the world face this every day. Last year we collected 1,500 shoes, this year we are aiming for 2,000!"
Soles4Souls partners with women's shelters, veterans' organizations, children's programs, and schools to get shoes and clothing to those who need it most.
Please join this incredible group of women and bring the shoes you no longer wear. The greatest `feet' you can do today is give new life to those lonely shoes in your closet.
Drop shoes off from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 25, at Campolindo High School Multipurpose Room, 300 Moraga Road, Moraga.
