Soles 4 Souls Trucking Day 2-13-21 Impact Statement
Last week on Saturday, February 13th, 2021 we invited 8 volunteers to help load a truck from our Bordentown Collection site. We loaded 9,383 lbs. of shoes and 2,729 lbs. of clothes.
The shoes and clothes were transported to our partner in New Jersey where the shoes will be sorted, graded, and repackaged, and sent to micro-entrepreneurs in countries like Dominican Republic, El Salvador, and Kenya.
We recently spoke with Sam, our long-time friend and partner in Haiti, about how the pandemic has affected used shoe and clothing donations. He shared his thoughts with us on why our continued operations bring purpose and meaning for him and his micro-entrepreneurs:
"There is a sense of hope that I see in the eyes of our micro-entrepreneurs [who sell the shoes you donate] every time they open a box of shoes. The kind of hope that reassures them tomorrow will be better. "– Sam Darguin, Soles4Souls Haiti Micro-Enterprise Partner and Haitian American Caucus Co-Founder and Country Director

RE: 2021 County History Partnership Program Grant
Dear Mr. Plummer:
I am happy to inform you that the Burlington County Board of County Commissioners awarded a grant in the amount of $10,000 to the Armed Forces Heritage Museum at its meeting held on January 27th. The grant is to be used for implementation of transportable exhibits on New Jersey’s involvement in the Revolutionary War. This funding is made possible through a grant awarded to the County by the New Jersey Historical Commission.
We look forward to hearing about your successes at the end of the grant program year! Congratulations!
