Story of the Week: Jackson Lions Club Partners with Soles4Souls

Our clubs understand the power of cooperation to achieve a common goal. Many clubs sponsor Boy Scouts and LCIF is working with HELP to build houses in Haiti. One club in Minnesota has partnered with Soles4Souls to recycle shoes.

The Jackson Lions Club began collecting shoes last spring for the organization, which provides footwear to people in developing nations as well as those in need in the United States. The club has donated 7,000 pairs of shoes. Lions drive the shoes to a processing facility where workers band pairs of shoes together and sort them by condition.

In this video, you’ll see the club collecting shoes and get a behind-the-scenes look at the facility where these shoes start the journey to help those in need.
