Lemle Law Group, a Santa Monica-based personal injury law firm, launched a shoe drive to help the Soles4Souls Pair It Forward campaign reach its goal of collecting 1 million pairs of shoes. The campaign is aimed at diverting used shoes away from landfills, and instead using them to generate a source of revenue for micro-entrepreneurs in developing nations.

In addition to the Pair It Forward campaign running through Earth Day (April 22), Attorney Robert Lemle of Lemle Law Group will continue on as a Soles4Souls official drop-off location, collecting for the remainder of 2015. The community can participate by bringing new or gently worn shoes to Lemle Law Group’s office location at 1639 11th St., #256.

People like Lemle and nonprofits like Soles4Souls are doing their part to re-purpose and extend the life of shoes. Soles4Souls offers its micro-enterprise program and distributes shoes to those in need locally and around the world. To date, they have distributed 22 million pairs in 127 countries.

For more information about the drive or the law firm, call (310) 392-3055 or visit www.soles4souls.org/pair-it-forward for more information about the organization.
