PARSIPPANY —One of the Seven Grand Initiatives of the 2018-2020 General Federation of Women’s Clubs Administration is for GFWC members to donate 1000 pairs of shoes to Soles4Souls or Nike Reuse a Shoe.

Members of the Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills answered the Federation call by donating 95 pairs of gently used shoes. The shoes were delivered to Soles4Souls in Franklin, New Jersey earlier this week, Soles4souls is a nonprofit social enterprise that creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world. Founded in 2006, the organization has distributed more than 30 million pairs of new and gently worn shoes in 127 countries.
