Foot Solutions to Donate $35,000 Worth of Shoes to Flood Victims in Atlanta with Soles4Souls, the Shoe Charity

As areas in Atlanta continue to recover from recent flooding, Foot Solutions stores are pitching in to help their neighbors in need. Foot Solutions Corporate along with Foot Solutions in Buckhead, on behalf of Soles4Souls, have committed to helping hundreds of flood victims by donating shoes to those who have lost everything in a low-income area of Atlanta near the river.

Soles4Souls is an international charity dedicated to providing free footwear to people in desperate need. Seeing the need in our own community, Foot Solutions Buckhead will deliver more than 220 pairs of new shoes valued at more than $35,000 and nearly one-hundred pair of gently used shoes to a small Atlanta area community badly affected by the flooding.

The donation will take place Saturday, October 3 at the First Baptist Church Chattahoochie, 1950 Bolton Road, in Atlanta beginning at 9:30 a.m.

Aadu Allpere, the owner of Foot Solutions Buckhead, learned of the devastation in the area from friend and fellow Rotarian Dr. Jim Haskell who ministers to families hit hard by the floods. Both Allpere and Haskell are members of the Buckhead Rotary Club and they knew they wanted to help.
