NFL Star and Shoe Carnival Join Soles4Souls

Shoe Carnival and Albert Haynesworth, the All Pro defensive tackle for the Tennesse Titans are teaming up with Soles4Souls to help provide those in need with the gift of shoes.

Haynesworth will be on-hand at Shoe Carnival in Nashville on Tuesday, June 24 from 3:00 PM until 7:00 PM to sign one autograph for each pair of new or "gently worn" shoes that are donated to Soles4Souls.

New shoes will be available in select styles and clearance prices starting at $5.00 at the following participating Shoe Carnival location: Cool Springs Galleria, 7085 Bakers Bridge Avenue, Franklin, TN, 37067.

Haynesworth hosted a signing earlier this year at Shoe Carnival that drew over 500 fans. He hopes that even more fans will come out to participate in this worthy cause.

"The last signing had a wonderful turnout, so I thought it would be a great idea to give back to a worthy cause like Soles4Souls at the same time," said Haynesworth. "I know that fans will clean out their closets and keep me very busy signing autographs all day."

"We are happy to offer Shoe Carnival customers the opportunity to meet Albert and donate their shoes to Soles4Souls," said Steve Meyer, Senior Vice President of Store Operations. "Soles4Souls' mission to provide shoes for those in need is a message that resonates with our customers. We hope this will be a memorable experience for everyone involved."

"We are thrilled that Albert and Shoe Carnival have chosen to partner with Soles4Souls," said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls. "The shoes donated by Albert's fans will make a huge impact on the lives of thousands of people in desperate need."
