Soles for Little Souls Partnership
Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. and SPEAR traditionally teams up to provide new shoes to children in local homeless shelters. The goal of the national shoe drive, “Soles for Little Souls,” is to give away 100,000 pairs of shoes to children in every community where Sigma Gamma Rho chapters exist. Distribution will take place simultaneously nationwide.
As a catalyst, or agent for service, SPEAR’s goal is to make a significant impact on public awareness and the level of contributions to those in need during our centennial. The idea of partnering with other national organizations can also be looked at for maximum participation in all arenas. This will allow for the collaboration with community-based organizations and provide shoes for those in need.
During the month of February 2022, donations were accepted on behalf of hundreds of local children/students across regions living in a transitional residence and/or select charities/schools on a national platform in our communities. SPEAR encouraged chapters at hub cities and community organizations to highlight their community service once the donations were made.
Since often times we don’t know the shoe sizes in advance, SPEAR Foundation is asking that donations be given in the form of gift cards, gift certificates form stores that sell shoes. Given the pandemic at this time we feel this would be the best options.
The SPEAR Foundation thanks you in advance for your participation and support of this initiative!
