WORTHINGTON - The Grand Prairie Rockets 4-H club is collecting gently used shoes to help Soles4Souls fight global poverty.

 

Used and new shoes can be dropped off in the big red “Ace Hardware” containers during the Nobles County Fair. The containers will be located in the 4-H office and in the commercial building during the fair.

 

Soles4Souls is a non-profit social enterprise that creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world. Founded in 2006, the organization has distributed more than 30 million pairs of new and used shoes in 127 countries.
