ATLANTA, Feb. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — ERA Sunrise Realty, due to the success of its 2017 donation drive for Soles4Souls, a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing, is spearheading a 2018 shoe drive. New and gently worn pairs of shoes can be dropped off at various ERA Sunrise Realty offices: 157 Reinhardt College Parkway, Canton, GA 30114; 1642 Powers Ferry Road, Suite 150, Marietta, GA 30067; 115 West Washington Street, Athens, GA 30601; and 104 Warren Road, Augusta, GA 30907.
"Just because the season of giving is over doesn’t mean the needs have been met," said Greg Martin, president of ERA Sunrise Realty. "We are proudly collecting shoes again for Soles4Souls to help this altruistic organization stamp out poverty." Soles4Souls aims is to eradicate extreme poverty by 2050.
Children every day are prevented from attending school and adults are unable to work as walking becomes unbearable, which perpetuates the cycle of poverty. To date, Soles4Souls has collected and distributed more than 30 million pairs of shoes to those in need in 127 countries around the world and all 50 states in the U.S.
"With the help of businesses and individuals that host donation drives, we can provide a life-changing solution: a good pair of shoes," said Buddy Teaster, President and CEO of Soles4Souls. "Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone’s life."

Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, the organization repurposes product to supply its micro-enterprise, disaster relief and direct assistance programs. Since 2006, it has distributed more than 30 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries. A nonprofit social enterprise, Soles4Souls earns more than half of its income and commits 100% of donations to programs.
