Peak Properties is proud to serve our community – not just in helping the good people of the greater Denver and Northern Colorado areas buy and sell real estate, but in also giving a helping hand to the less fortunate areas around the world. Or…well, in this case, a helping foot.
This year, we’re looking for a donation of shoes – not money. Peak Properties is proud to kick off our 2019 SOLES4SOULS shoe drive by collecting pairs of new or gently-worn shoes for the places and people that need it the most. SOLES4SOULS is a Nashville-based non-profit organization aimed at disrupting the cycle of poverty by creating sustainable jobs and providing relief throughout the world.
SOLES4SOULS does this by distributing gently-used shoes and clothing to communities in need around the world. Since 2006, SOLES4SOLES has:
- Distributed more than 30 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries
- Generated over $250 million in economic impact
SOLES4SOULS earns more than half of its income and commits 100% of donations to programs. Donated shoes go to Soles4Souls’ micro-enterprise programs that create jobs in Haiti, Honduras, and other developing nations. The micro-enterprise model provides individuals the ability to start small businesses by providing a steady supply of high-quality, low-cost product. The income generated by selling just one pair of shoes in Haiti can provide up to five meals for a family in need, whereas 30 pairs sold by an entrepreneur in Honduras can provide up to a year of schooling for a child.
Additionally, the donated shoes serve an earth-friendly purpose – their second life keeps them out of landfills and helps to protect the environment.
How You Can Help
Alex Tooke, Derek Weber, and the entire Peak Properties team are asking for all of our clients for their help with the SOLES4SOULS shoe drive in 2019. This year, we’re aiming to collect 5.000 pairs of new or gently-worn shoes for the SOLES4SOULS drive.
Moving time is the ideal time to take stock of your shoe collection! Save the space in your new place and pack up those gently-used or out-of-style pairs for a SOLES4SOULS donation.
So, between April 1 – December 31, 2019, please help us achieve our goal of 5,000 pairs! Bring your new or gently-worn shoes – of any kind – to 2851 S. Parker Road, Suite 100, Aurora, CO or 3050 67th Ave. #102, Greeley, CO or call the office @ 720-515-7713 to schedule a time for us to stop by. You’ll be doing the world a lot of good.
