Hands on Nashville Teens Are Great!

dsc05127dsc05122While thousands of runners were racing in 90 degree heat for the Nashville Marathon, the RV was standing still at Opry Mills Mall. We worked with some great teen volunteers from Hands on Nashville collecting gently used shoes. Freed Hardemon University College Democrats dropped off over 1,200 pairs of shoes! A special thanks to Arianne Krulish, Justin Spurlock, Seth Yarney and Anthony Wade for making the delivery. Then the Hands on Nashville volunteers sorted the shoes, made sure they were rubber banded together and loaded them into the Soles4Souls box truck. We also got donations of expensive running shoes from the marathon runners. Yes, some of the runners actually took off heir sweaty shoes and gave them to Soles4Souls as they crossed the finish line.
