Shoppers are invited to donate funds or bring their ‘gently worn' shoes to NEF corporate offices.

NASHVILLE, TN – DATE –New England Footwear, a leader in innovative footwear, is proud to announce a partnership with Soles4Souls, the international shoe charity. From April 20th, 2010 through April 20th, 2011, New England Footwear will be collecting shoes at their corporate headquarters in Newmarket NH.

Every 9 seconds, Soles4Souls gives away another pair of shoes to someone in need. The shoe charity has earned glowing endorsements from Hollywood stars and professional athletes, but the people that truly make the non-profit organization effective are those who clean out their closets to personally drop off their ‘gently worn' shoes at a participating location..

"Soles4Souls makes such a difference in the lives of so many and has really helped us to ensure we stay true to our core values. Health and wellness is important not only for our feet and body but also for our environment. By helping to collect and distribute gently worn shoes we can continue to spread the message that healthy comfortable footwear leads to happiness and wellbeing." said CEO Doug Clark.

Soles4Souls and New England Footwear will be collecting your gently worn footwear to ship to people in need, whether they are victims of natural disasters or subject to living in extreme poverty. It is estimated that Americans have 1.5 billion pairs of unused shoes lying in their closets. The charity can use each and every one of these pairs to make a tangible difference in someone's life.

“New England Footwear is a terrific partner and we are excited they are offering customers a great way to get involved in our mission,” said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls. “Their efforts will benefit many people in need and we are proud to have their support,” he said.
