Amazing Generosity From Rocky Outdoor Gear!

We knew it was going to be a special day when we saw a team of Rocky Outdoor Gear employees come to the RV carrying bags of shoes…and more shoes…and then even more shoes.  A huge pile of over 600 shoes was soon stacked in front of the Soles4Souls RV.  Throughout the afternoon, generous community members stopped by to donate their shoes also. But wait! There’s more! We were told Rocky Boots was donating a 30 foot Freightliner Box truck to Soles4Souls! The truck will go to good use collecting and distributing shoes around the US to people in need. Rocky Boots is a world leader in rugged outdoor and occupational footwear. Plus their Rocky Outdoor Gear was a busy place. Tour buses pulled up with large groups of people who obviously enjoyed their time shopping. Almost everyone left the store with a bag filled with items. Allan didn’t shop, but enjoyed his Reuben Sandwich from the store café.

What we noticed most was the positive, upbeat attitude from Mike Brooks and the other employees. Everyone was willing to pitch in and load up the shoes. (Not to mention collecting the shoes in the first place.) Thanks Mike and Liz and everyone else for helping our shoe charity!

This truck will collect and deliver thousands of shoes!
