INDIANAPOLIS – The Finish Line is encouraging fans to clean out their closets and bring any old shoes, sandals or boots down to the stadium this Sunday. The Indianapolis Colts and Finish Line are hosting the Sole Destination Shoe Collection to benefit Soles4Souls prior to kickoff of the Colts vs. Lions game. From 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., volunteers will be collecting all types of new and gently used shoes at the Colts Community Collections Stations located outside each Lucas Oil Stadium gate. Each fan who donates an item before heading into the game will receive a coupon good for a $10 discount at Finish Line stores or www.finishline.com.
Soles4Souls accepts all types of new and gently worn footwear including athletic shoes, work boots, and sandals. Every donation will be used to make a significant difference in the quality of life of someone in desperate need. Soles4Souls along with its many distribution partners are working to provide shoes "around the corner and around the world" to those who are without any type of footwear.
Since its inception, Soles4Souls has facilitated the distribution of nearly 4 million pairs of shoes worldwide. The intent of the organization is to provide free footwear to people in desperate need. These people include the victims of Hurricane Katrina, people living in the abject poverty of refugee camps in Uganda and women escaping domestic violence situations who need professional shoes for interviews.
