This month Temple Israel Sisterhood is collecting new and gently used shoes for Soles4Souls.

Soles4Souls was founded as a disaster relief organization after philanthropists and shoe executives provided footwear to those most impacted by The Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004, and Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Every day children are prevented from attending school and adults are unable to work. Walking becomes unbearable.  A new pair of shoes provides relief in many developing nations around the globe, in times of disaster, and helps bridge the economic gap in the United States and Canada.

Sisterhood will be collecting shoes for the month of December, and the collection box is located in the Temple office.
