During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Adopt-A-Bin to create community engagement, provide new opportunities for those in need AND give back to the environment. Soles4Souls needs a volunteer or a group of volunteers to "Adopt-A-Bin" and help us clean out donation bins then transport the items to one of our Bordentown, NJ warehouse location. We will provide bags, gloves and other necessary items to get the items from the bins. You will need to use your own vehicle to do this task.
Soles4Souls creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world. It’s estimated that 21 billion pounds of textile waste is dumped in landfills every year. That makes up more than 5% of all municipal waste generated every year. Since 2006, Soles4Souls has diverted 23.8 million pounds of shoes and clothes from landfills and instead created meaningful economic opportunities and helped provide new shoes for those in need around the globe. Gently-worn shoes collected help individuals start and sustain small businesses to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
Here is the impact an entrepreneur can make with the sale of 1, 20 or 30 pairs of shoes: 1 pair of shoes can provide 5 meals for Marie-Ange and her family in Haiti, 20 pairs of shoes can provide a year’s worth of shelter for Ginette and her family in Haiti and 30 pairs of shoes can provide a year’s worth of schooling for Tracy’s daughter in Honduras.
We have multiple donation bins that need someone to take ownership of cleaning out once a month. Please see other listings for other locations!
