Mast General Store Drive

Helping disaster victims take their first steps toward recovery, Mast General Store collected 3,000 pairs of gently worn shoes. This was made possible by the generosity of customers and the local community determined to help the needy worldwide.

“This is just remarkable,” said Mary Nase, general manager for the Mast Store in Greenville, S.C. Nase served as company coordinator of the Soles4Souls project. “All the store communities have really supported this project. It is wonderful to see people come together to help others.”

"Eight large pallets are now on their way to the Soles4Souls warehouse for distribution," said Nase. "To give you ideas of just how big this is, one pallet of boxes is over five feet tall and about four feet wide, then multiply by eight. This definitely will not fit in the trunk of your car or the back of your pickup truck."
