Orland Park customers donate shoes

Upon arriving at the Orland Park Foot Solutions store, we were greeted by a police office. Don’t worry, John and Melissa Cain, owners of the store, weren’t being arrested for selling white shoes after Labor Day. The police officer was actually donating shoes to Soles4Souls. His department had confiscated 200 pairs of “knock-off” Nike shoes. Rather than destroying the shoes, they contacted Foot Solutions, looking for a shoe charity that would put the new shoes to good use. We were more than happy to collect those shoes (complete with the Nike swoosh) to send to people in need.

By the end of our time at Orland Park, we were exhausted. Not that we had done that much, but because we watched the Foot Solutions staff work at a frantic pace all day. The store was busy! People kept coming by to donate shoes, enjoy refreshments and then discuss their personal foot care needs with the staff. It was 4:00pm when I caught Melissa grabbing her first bite of a sandwich for lunch. Foot Solutions’ loyal customers donated over 350 pairs of shoes to Soles4Souls.

    Allan & Silvana, We’re saving you 4 parking spaces in front of our Mequon Foot Solutions store for Monday afternoon when you’re here to visit. We already had some donations, with one person dropping off 36 pairs! Looking forward to meeting you. We should have pleasant weather here in Wisconsin.
