Ten year-old Traci Weinstein from Irondequoit, NY has collected 25,000 pairs of shoes for those in need. Weinstein began collecting shoes Labor Day weekend. After three months of multiple shoe collections throughout her community, she wrapped up her efforts during a final shoe drive Thanksgiving weekend with a grand total of 26,925 pairs of shoes. This shoe collection benefits the Soles4Souls, a global not-for-profit institution dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty.
