Folks at the Brimfield Senior Center Supporting Soles4Souls

Members of the Brimfield Senior Center in Brimfield, MA are stepping up their fund-raising efforts while helping people in need throughout the world.

Pairing during the month of June with Soles4Souls, the seniors are collecting monetary donations from family, friends, teachers and neighbors for the purchase of new Soles4Souls clogs or flip-flops. They are also collecting shoes.

Funds generated by the project will be used for senior center parties and programs like speakers, health clinics and performances.

Like many other schools and organizations, the Brimfield Senior Center often utilizes fund-raising programs to generate revenue for its operations and goals. The Soles4Souls program provides an innovative alternative to traditional fund-raisers, so seniors are able to raise money while making a difference in the lives of others.

New and gently used comfortable shoes also can be donated to Soles4Souls by bringing them to the Senior Center at the Brimfield Congregational Church, 20 Main St.

Monetary donations can be sent to the senior center at P.O. Box 172, Brimfield, MA 01010. Make checks payable to Soles4Souls.

"We have been looking for a good cause, something to get involved in that will help a lot of people in need," said Heather M. Dickinson, activities coordinator for the senior center. "We do our own parties, lunches and other activities. We are a close group, like family."
