THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - A Thomasville shoe store owner is using her industry know-how to help people in need around the world. If you've got more shoes than you know what to do with, you can help too.
Kathy's in downtown Thomasville is a collection site for a charity called "Soles For Souls." They collect gently worn shoes and distribute them to people who need them in 60 countries.
Owner Kathy Murphy says she knows people will help because she hears the same thing everyday from her customers. "Oh I don't need any new shoes! I have too many shoes. Well, great solution to your problem. Clean out your closet, bring your shoes to us and we will appreciate it. You'll be doing something wonderful for someone who needs it and you'll be helping yourself at the same time," says Murphy.
They've already collected 200 pairs in the last week. If you bring some shoes in before August 1st you'll get a 10% discount on a new pair! Murphy says there is a special need for children's shoes.
