WSAToday covers Soles4Souls donation in Southern California

Soles4Souls is rushing to the rescue yet again, this time in Southern California. The nonprofit organization that provides footwear to those in need is sending more than 50,000 pairs of new shoes to victims of the recent wildfires in the region. Thus far the flames have destroyed 1,500 homes and businesses across a combined total of more than 480,000 acres, causing the evacuation more than 500,000 residents.

Soles4Souls has teamed up with several other relief organizations and government agencies including Operation Compassion, which sent three trucks en route today. The shoes are scheduled to arrive in such areas as Temecula, Poway and San Diego County on Monday.
