Today is DE Day of Service; Cornerstone Celebrates with Sole-A-Bration and Soles for Change
Wednesday, June 14, 2017 6:45 AM

Soles for Change

Happy DE Day of Service! Today Credit Union Development Educators (DE) are spending their day of service doing good works for their communities. How is your credit union marking the day?

Cornerstone Credit Union League and Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation are celebrating DE Day, June 14, with credit unions from around the region by collecting new and gently used shoes for Soles for Change, a Credit Unions Care initiative.

See photo of just some of the shoes Cornerstone has collected from credit unions throughout the region.

If you're in the area, you're invited to our Sole-A-Bration today 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.

After DE Day, through December 2017
Even after DE Day comes and goes, there's still time for you to participate in collecting shoes for Soles for Change. The end goal is to collect 7,500 pairs of shoes by the end of December. We will continue to need your help in this endeavor. All shoes collected will go to developing nations around the world in a unique endeavor designed to lift individuals, families, and communities out of extreme poverty through micro-enterprise.

Here's how you can help 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
  • DEs have an ongoing opportunity to give back the DE way by picking up and delivering or shipping the shoes to Cornerstone.

If you are interested in participating and collecting shoes at your credit union, please contact Staci Zale or Tamra Gaines for more information.
