Lehigh Safety Shoe Company Helping Soles4Souls to Recycle Safety Shoes

Lehigh Safety Shoe Company is one of the largest and most respected safety footwear companies in the world and they are joining Soles4Souls to provide an easy way to trade in 'gently worn' safety shoes and boots to help people in need. Each pair of boots and shoes will go directly to a person in need while keeping the footwear out of American landfills.

The Soles4Souls-Lehigh Trade-in Program is a unique way for Americans to reach out to others in the working force that cannot afford the proper footwear to perform their duties safely. Soles4Souls is looking for safety directors, plant managers and others in the industrial community to answer our call to action and help thousands in need.

"We are excited to join Soles4Souls. Lehigh would like to see these shoes on people's feet rather than being dumped in a landfill," stated Richard Simms, Sr. Vice President and General Manager of Lehigh Safety Shoes.

Industrial companies currently hosting shoe fairs or shoemobile events at their plants can easily participate by signing up with Lehigh and Soles4Souls. Each participating location will receive donation boxes, brochures and advertising materials for the event, and PR coverage in their local market highlighting their company as a partner in the recycling program.
