Building on the drive’s success over the last two years, Deckers has set the goal of gathering 10,000 pairs of shoes to help Soles4Souls serve victims of natural disasters and prevent serious health conditions that can spread through unprotected feet. Shoe donations also help support micro-business efforts that work to eradicate poverty by providing impoverished people with a means to support themselves and their families.
How to Donate
Earl Warren Show Grounds will be the only collection location for this year’s shoe drive. Simply drive by and drop off unwanted footwear in the collection containers, which have been generously donated by MarBorg Industries. Collection bins are located in front of the Earl Warren office and will be out the entire month of April, with donations welcome anytime, seven days a week.
Free Fair Admission for Donating
Planning to bring your family and friends to enjoy the Santa Barbara Fair this April? Enjoy FREE entry on opening night when you donate a pair of shoes on April 24th. For every pair you donate between April 25th and 28th, you will receive a raffle ticket to win a pair of UGG® Australia boots, which will be raffled each night between these dates.
Deckers + Soles4Souls
This year’s drive will mark the 3rd Annual Deckers Soles4Souls community-wide shoe drive. Deckers began its partnership with Soles4Souls in 2007, and since then has donated over 268,000 pairs of shoes for international relief efforts. “At Deckers, we are committed to the responsible disposal of shoes,” says Angel Martinez, President and CEO of Deckers Outdoor Corporation, “and our annual Soles4Souls drive allows us to step up that commitment in a big way.”
