Hometown Challenge FAQs for Soles4Souls

EDITOR'S NOTE: Paxville native Tiffany Johnson is partnering with friends in her home community to get donations of shoes during October for Soles4Souls. We posted this piece for her yesterday. Here is a list of Frequently Asked Questions regarding Hometown Challenge, her project with the charity. WHAT ARE THE DATES? Collection dates will run from Oct. 1-31 WHAT IS YOUR GOAL? 30,000 WHAT TYPES OF SHOES DO YOU TAKE? We take all kinds of shoes. High heels, sandals, boots and athletic shoes. Any type of shoe ... new and used. IS THERE ANYTHING SPECIAL WE SHOULD DO TO OUR SHOES WHEN WE DROP THEM OFF? Please make sure your shoes are paired with their mate. If they have laces, tie them together, or simply band them together with a rubber band. It is very important that the shoes be together as a pair.

CAN I GET A TAX RECEIPT FOR MY SHOES? Yes, the form is available by emailing us at sumterhometownchallenge@gmail.com. CAN I JUST GIVE A DONATION? Yes, it will not count towards the Hometown Challenge, but donations are greatly needed and always welcomed. For every dollar donated to us, we can move a pair of shoes to someone in need. Your gifts are tax deductible. soles4souls.org/donate COLLECTION SITES: Manning Early Childhood Center 2759 Raccoon Road in Manning Scott Will Toyota 2540 Broad St. in Sumter Miss Libby’s School of Dance 155 W.
