Today on Cause Talk Radio, Megan and Joe talk to Buddy Teaster, CEO of Soles4Souls.
Nashville-based Soles4Souls is a global not-for-profit focused on fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty.
Soles4Souls advances its anti-poverty mission by collecting new and used shoes and clothes from individuals, schools, faith-based institutions, civic organizations and corporate partners. They distribute those shoes and clothes both via direct donations to people in need and by provisioning qualified micro-enterprise programs designed to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities.
Soles4Souls is fortunate to have many corporate partners, but the two we discuss today are Stride Rite and PUMA. While both of these companies are known for their outstanding footwear, Buddy and his team know them best for taking bold steps to support Soles4Souls' mission.
