Falls Church, Virginia, June 3, 2011: Sevatec, Inc. (Sevatec) announced today that the firm has partnered with Soles4Souls in the “11 in 11” campaign, a charity committed to collecting and distributing gently worn shoes to people living in extreme poverty and recovering from natural disasters. Sevatec will support the charity’s initiative to distribute 11 million pairs of shoes in 2011. Soles4Souls, Inc. provides one pair of shoes to a person in need every seven seconds and has currently distributed more than 13 million pairs of shoes worldwide.
“With tragedies such as the earthquakes in countries like Haiti and Japan, on top of the enormous needs elsewhere, we can use the estimated 1.5 billion shoes taking up space in the closets of ordinary people to change the world one pair at a time,” said Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls, Wayne Elsey. “We need partners like Sevatec to get behind our “11 in 11″ campaign and get a little crazy this year. Donating shoes is one of the most simple yet profound acts you can do, because it will greatly improve someone’s life in the most difficult of times.”
Sevatec’s Vice President of Human Resources, Joan Moret, comments, “Sevatec is pleased to partner with Sole4Souls in raising awareness and collecting shoes on their behalf in order to aid the millions of people around the world. We will continue to support organizations that are making an impact in people’s everyday lives.”
Sevatec will host a shoe drive at the firm’s headquarters and five of Sevatec’s off-site locations from July 5-22, 2011.
