We Need Your Help: Update on DE Day and Soles for Change
Tuesday, May 30, 2017 6:45 AM

Soles for Change at People's Trust

In honor of Development Educators (DE) Day, June 14, Cornerstone Credit Union League and Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation are making a huge push to collect new and gently used shoes for Soles for Change, a Credit Unions Care initiative. Our goal through 2017 is 7,500 pairs of shoes, but through DE Day we are striving to collect 2,500 pairs of shoes. And we need your help!

You've got shoes you don't wear; we've got a better purpose for them than gathering dust in your closet. You can make a big difference for those in need simply by donating your shoes. Read more about Soles for Change.  

We would like to thank the following credit union pros who have stepped up to Soles for Change challenge:

  • Melissa Burleson, Tarrant County’s CU
  • Shelly Chinnery, People’s Trust FCU
  • Betty DeWeese, Telco Plus CU and East Texas Chapter
  • Linda Jeffrey, TruService
  • Melanie Kennedy, Southwest Financial
  • Edna Namrum, CPS IBEW FCU
  • Beth Peters, Unity One and Fort Worth Chapter

Can we add your name and credit union to our list?

Here's How You Can Help

  • Through June 6:  Be an advocate in your credit union by spreading the word and collecting shoes.
  • June 9:  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:  We honor you today! 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.
