LOS ANGELES, Sept. 6, 2018
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Exceptional Wellness Center, founded by Dr. Gloria Phillips, which specializes in chiropractic care, allergy elimination and Autism spectrum disorders, is hosting a back-to-school donation drive for Soles4Souls from mid-August to mid-September. New or gently worn pairs of shoes can be dropped off at 2001 Barrington Ave., Suite 316, Los Angeles, CA 90025.
"I strongly encourage everyone in the community to drop off a pair of shoes to help someone in need," said Dr. Phillips, a board-certified Doctor of Chiropractic.
Soles4Souls is a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. 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.
"Businesses and individuals that host donation drives for Soles4Souls help us fulfill our mission by providing short-term relief and long-term solutions to global poverty," said Buddy Teaster, Soles4Souls President and CEO. "Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone's life."
