LINE-X Total Truck Center Helping to Combat Poverty


A LINE-X Total Truck Center in Castle Rock, Colorado, is now an official Soles4Souls drop-off center. New or gently worn pairs of shoes can be dropped off at the shop to benefit the homeless population.

“I strongly encourage everyone in the community to drop by and drop off a pair of shoes to help a person in need,” said Shane Allen, owner of LINE-X Total Truck Center.

Soles4Souls is a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. Soles4Souls aims is to eradicate extreme poverty by 2050. Children every day are prevented from attending school and adults are unable to work as walking becomes unbearable, which perpetuates the cycle of poverty. To date, Soles4Souls has collected and distributed more than 30 million pairs of shoes to those in need in 127 countries around the world and all 50 states in the U.S.

“Businesses and individuals that host donation drives for Soles4Souls help us fulfill our mission by providing short-term relief and long-term solutions to global poverty,” said Buddy Teaster, Soles4Souls president and CEO. “Every single one of those pairs of shoes collected by our partners makes a difference in someone’s life.”
