Mount Vernon Triangle resident and professional organizer Scott Roewer began a citywide shoe drive in November for the charity Soles4Souls. The drive has been so successful he now has 5000 pairs of shoes. His commitment has been beyond just the collection process as his condo has become more of a shoe warehouse than a home. It would be a great benefit to the cause if a local owner of vacant retail space would donate space to store the shoes.
Soles4Souls is a 501(c)3 organization. Anyone who donated space would be able to write off the donation of space and Soles4Souls would pay the insurance and all necessary of fees to have the space open on a Saturday or Sunday for groups to drop off the shoes they collect. I believe Scott only needs the space through May 1st.
