Check out this press release:

Charlotte, NC  – The Bag Lady announced today that it is hosting a shoe drive to benefit Soles4Souls™ Inc., the international footwear charity that delivers shoes to needy people around the world.

During the shoe drive, The Bag Lady will be offering a discount coupon to all customers who bring in gently worn pairs of shoes toward the effort.  The shoe drive will begin on June 1 and will end on July 31, 2009.  The Bag Lady is located at 1710 Kenilworth Ave. in the Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte, NC.

“Soles4Souls is such a worthy cause,” said Susan Burns, Store Manager of The Bag Lady.  “It’s a meaningful and easy way to get the local community involved in a global effort.  Plus, it’s a great incentive to clean out our closets!” she said.

"We are excited that The Bag Lady is working with us to spread joy to people, both here in the United States and around the world," said Wayne Elsey, Founder of Soles4Souls.  "It is only because of proactive retail stores, such as The Bag Lady, that we are able to accomplish our goal of getting shoes on the feet of people who need them most," he said.

For more information on how you can get involved with this shoe drive and take advantage of the discount toward a new pair of shoes, contact The Bag Lady at  (704) 338-9778. You can also visit their web site at
