Volunteers and celebrities will join the Los Angeles Mission on Friday to distribute new shoes to the homeless.
CaCee Cobb (Undatable), Donald Faison (Scrubs), Liam Hemsworth (The Last Song), Maksim Chmerkovskiy, (Dancing with the Stars), Jayson Blair (The Hard Times of R. J. Berger), Tony Dovolani (Dancing with the Stars) are scheduled to appear along with other celebrities and volunteers from Creative Recreation to hand out shoes to the community.
Charity Soles4Souls will be there providing shoes to hundreds at the Mission, following the midday meal.
Footwear is a critical need for the homeless in Los Angeles and providing shoes to those in need is just one way Creative Recreation is striving to help. Many homeless and poor suffer from foot issues because of ill-fitting shoes, and the inability to take care of their feet adequately. New, correct sized shoes will make a big difference to aid in their overall health and well-being.
Soles4Souls focuses on providing free shoes to needy people around the world. The organization collects and distributes both new and “gently worn” shoes. Soles4Souls was started by professionals in the footwear industry who use industry resources to make a difference around the world.
The event takes place at the LA Mission at 303 E. Fifth Street from 1pm on Friday, February 25.
