Soles4Souls(R), the Shoe Charity, Announces National Partnership with 1-800-GOT-JUNK?

The world's largest junk removal service will now add shoe donations to its collection list.

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 14, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- Soles4Souls®, the international shoe charity, announced a new partnership with 1-800-GOT-JUNK? to offer North Americans a unique opportunity to redistribute shoes from their closets. The professional junk removal company is offering its services to donors with large amounts of shoes, including city wide shoe collections and events. Instead of 'junking' the shoes, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? will collect and redistribute the footwear to Soles4Souls. With franchise locations in every major metro in North America, Soles4Souls hopes to collect 1 million pairs of shoes throughout 2012.

"There is a distinction between used shoes and 'junk,' and we hope that our partnership will help the average household continue to separate the two in their minds," said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls. "Our relationship with 1-800-GOT-JUNK? will offer additional support to our donor base and hopefully encourage more people to send us their shoes."

"Our company and Soles4Souls are perfectly aligned to help each other," says Brian Scudamore, Founder and CEO of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. "We are always looking for ways to keep unwanted items out of the waste stream. Our relationship with Soles4Souls sees that our charitable efforts complement our ambitious environmental goals. Everyone wins."
