ABAC on the Square Sponsors Project to Collect Shoes

To celebrate ABAC on the Square’s 10th birthday and the 100th birthday of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, ABAC on the Square is sponsoring a service project to benefit Soles4Souls.

The ABAC on the Square Leadership Society is sponsoring this drive and hopes to involve the entire community in Moultrie, GA in reaching out to victims of disaster and poverty at home and abroad.

ABAC on the Square Director Kay Powell said the Soles4Souls drive will take place from Oct. 20 to 31. Shoes can be dropped at ABAC on the Square Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day or placed in collection boxes around the county. Shoes should be held together with a rubber band or by tying the laces together.

A send-off celebration will take place at ABAC on the Square Nov. 6 at 9 a.m. The shoes will be taken to the national distribution center in Roanoke, Ala., for worldwide distribution.

For more information, contact ABAC on the Square at (229) 891-7235.
