Credit unions are beating feet to gather up new and gently used shoes for this Wednesday's Soles for Change and DE Day celebration. Here are just a few of the participants. Will you be joining them this June 14? You still have time!

  • Muskogee Federal Credit Union placed bins in the lobby areas of their three locations to collect shoes for the Soles for Change shoe drive. Members and employees answered the call by donating 64 pairs of shoes.
  • The San Angelo Chapter of Credit Unions has collected more than 100 pairs of shoes, which will be delivered to the Cornerstone office by DE grads celebrating DE Day.
  • People's Trust is delivering dozens of shoes.
  • Texas DPS Credit Union collected 75 pairs of shoes.
  • Amplify Credit Union collected more than 60 pairs of shoes.
  • Cornerstone's Austin Advocacy office also collected dozens of shoes.

Cornerstone's goal through 2017 is to collect 7,500 pairs of shoes, but through DE Day the goal is 2,500 pairs with the help of all credit unions in the region. Won't you donate your gently used shoes?

Here's how you can help this week and through December:

  • Be an advocate in your credit union by spreading the word and collecting shoes.
  • Mail or ship collected shoes to Cornerstone's main office at 6801 Parkwood Boulevard, Suite 300, Plano, Texas 75024. Attn: Soles for Change
  • If you're a DE:  Here's an opportunity to give back the DE way. We would love to see our local DEs pick up and deliver or ship the shoes to Cornerstone (see above).

Join Us for the Sole-A-Bration
If you're in the area, you're invited to our Sole-A-Bration on June 14 at 2 p.m. at Cornerstone's main office in Plano. We want to thank everyone for participating in Soles for Change, and we'll share cake, refreshments, and photo opportunities. Shoes will be collected at this time, as well.

But even if you can't join us for the party, you can volunteer in the weeks leading up to June 14 to help us reach our goal of 2,500 pairs of shoes by June 14—and 7,500 by Dec. 31. If you are interested in participating and collecting shoes at your credit union, please contact Staci Zale or Tamra Gaines for more information.
