Father-and-son law practice Bolon Law Offices is hosting a summer shoe donation drive for Soles4Souls, a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. New or gently worn pairs of shoes can be dropped off at both of the firm’s locations: The Marquette Building, 140 S. Dearborn Street, Suite 1610 Chicago, IL 60603 or Woodfield Preserve, 10 N. Martingale Road, Suite 400 Schaumburg, IL 60173.
“I am extremely honored to be able to get the community involved and make a difference globally,” said Laurence Bolon, a distinguished trial and appellate lawyer and founder of Bolon Law Offices.
Soles4Souls aims to eradicate extreme poverty by 2050. Children every day are prevented from attending school and adults are unable to work as walking becomes unbearable, which perpetuates the cycle of poverty. To date, Soles4Souls has collected and distributed more than 30 million pairs of shoes to those in need in 127 countries around the world and all 50 states in the U.S.
“Businesses and individuals that host donation drives for Soles4Souls help us fulfill our mission by providing short-term relief and long-term solutions to global poverty,” said Buddy Teaster, President and CEO of Soles4Souls. “Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone’s life.”
