Guest: Emory Dinner Director They are based in Nashville but they have a location in Denver.  They take in gently worn or new shoes.  They take the shoes and give them to women in other countries so they can create their own small business.  They are also giving free shoes to kids and adults here in Colorado.  They work with school districts to help the kids who need shoes to get a new pair.  A new pair of shoes is more than a necessity for their feet; it also helps boost their confidence.  A $10 donation can provide a new pairs of shoes but $20 can provide a high quality shoe.  There are donation locations all around Colorado.  You can take up to 12 pairs to those locations.  When the shoes go to women in other countries, they can sell a used pair for $5-$10 which is huge for them.  They have given out over 3000 pairs of shoes in Colorado plus they also do a coat drive in the winter.       Soles4Souls.org/Colorado
