Angels All Around Home Care Service Inc. in Cumming is an official drop-off location for Soles4Souls.
The global, anti-poverty organization collects shoes for those living in underdeveloped nations or who are suffering after national disasters.
The Angels All Around collection efforts will be directed to typhoon recovery efforts in the Philippines.
Soles4Souls has committed to provide at least 200,000 pairs of new shoes to the island nation’s recovery efforts.
Used shoes collected locally at Angels All Around will be used by the organization to support creation of micro-jobs in poor economies while also helping to fund transport and distribution of new shoes.
Angels All Around is a family-owned private, in-home care provider founded by nurse Bambi Kimmes and Dwight Gertsen.
“We are thrilled to be collecting for such a worthy organization,” said Kimmes in a statement. “Between helping with the Philippines and the upcoming holidays, this couldn’t be a better time to give.”
The Soles4Souls drop-off location is at 125 Enterprise Drive, Suite C.
