Sole 2 Soul’s fitness center in Galva recently partnered up with Soles4Souls, a Nashville based non-profit organization, to collect gently used shoes to help disadvantaged people across the United States and the world.  The month long shoe drive in September netted 221 pairs of shoes from residents of Galva and surrounding communities.  All sizes, shapes, colors and styles of shoes were received.

On October 6, local Soles4Souls ambassador Anne Johnson, owner of Sole 2 Soul, delivered numerous boxes and oversized bags of shoes and a small monetary donation to a Sheldon warehouse facility where the shoes will be quickly processed for delivery.

“I am continually amazed and overwhelmed at the wonderful response we have had to this annual shoe drive for the past four years”, said Johnson.  “I am thankful to everyone who donated shoes and am humbled by the support we received from northwest Iowa to help less fortunate souls during this 2017 harvest season,” Johnson said.
