UHD To Host 'Soles4Souls' Shoe Drive Oct. 26

The UHD Staff Council will host a "Soles4Souls" shoe drive to help those in need of footwear.

Soles4Souls is a nonprofit global enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. More than 300 million children around the world have poor footwear or none at all. This exposes children to soil-transmitted parasites and diseases and can prevent children from going to school.

Commerce Street Building

  • Criminal Justice Training Center (C112)
  • First Floor Lobby, next to the Security Officer's Station
