Soles4Souls

Would you like to be involved in philanthropic organizations, but you don’t have the time to volunteer?  Here are two great ways to contribute that only require a trip to HTFL.

The library now has a collection box for Soles4Souls in our lobby.  Soles4Souls is a non-profit organization which accepts “gently worn” shoe donations and facilitates sending them to individuals in need.   Since 2005, Soles4Souls has given away more than 14 million pairs of shoes to people in over 127 countries.  Soles4Souls has been featured in Runner's World, Ladies’ Home Journal, National Geographic’s Green Guide, and The New York Times. It has appeared on CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, BBC, CNN and thousands of regional news outlets across North America.
