Monroe Truck Equipment Participates in Soles4Souls Shoe Drive
March 10, 2021

Monroe Truck Equipment is proud to participate in the Soles4Souls shoe donation drive, as a part of our commitment to giving back to the community. Soles4Souls helps us reach beyond our local communities to make a difference for individuals and families across the nation, and even internationally.

Soles4Souls is a non-profit organization that distributes new or gently used shoes and socks and other clothing items to communities in need all over the world. Together with more than 1,200 nonprofit partners, their mission is to “wear out poverty.”

The GFWC Monroe’s Woman’s Club is hosting a shoe drive for Soles4Souls, collecting new and gently used shoes to distribute to children and families in need. The Monroe Truck Equipment team is participating in the drive, and it is open to the public. The drive runs from February 10th – April 30th, 2021. There are three drop off locations in the local Monroe area:

  • Bruni Miller Construction
    1617 4th Ave., W
    Monroe, WI 53566
  • Front Porch
    1228 3rd St., N
    Monroe, WI 53566
  • Green County Family YMCA
    1307 2nd St., N
    Monroe, WI 53566

Having safe shoes for everyday wear isn’t just important for moving around safely from place to place. Without shoes, people are vulnerable to scrapes, cuts, bacteria and parasites that can lead to infection and serious illness. Without shoes, it makes attending school and work difficult, leading to lapses in work or education.

Though Soles4Souls is known for its international work, they do about half of their work with families in the United States. There are many communities and families in our own country that need the resources and support of the Soles4Souls organization. They have worked with veteran groups, in communities that have been deeply affected by natural disasters, and families who are recovering after major loss. 

If you want to get involved, you can drop off shoes in the human resources building at the Monroe Truck Equipment Monroe, WI location or one of the local locations. If you want to donate in the future, you can donate momentarily through the Soles4Souls website, or ship your shoes for free through their Zappo’s partnership
