Five Performance Auto dealerships come together to support a great cause - Soles4Souls, which provides shoes and other aid to those in need.
Online PR News – 23-August-2011 – – Five dealerships from the Performance Auto Group are currently participating in the collection of shoes for Soles4Souls, a Nashville-based charity started in 2005. Lexus of Omaha, Lexus of Lincoln, Performance Toyota-Scion of La Vista, Performance Toyota-Scion of Lincoln and Legends Toyota each have donation receptacles in their dealerships where new, used, single or paired shoes of all kinds can be dropped.
As with all of Performance Auto’s community involvement, the team at Performance Auto is proud to participate in such a worthwhile cause. The charity began after founder Wayne Elsey witnessed the aftermath of the tsunami that hit Southeast Asia in 2004. In the last six years, Soles4Souls has collected and distributed over 15 million pairs of shoes to those in need, reaching 127 countries around the world. Focusing largely on disaster relief, Soles4Souls also supports and helps to facilitate micro-enterprise programs in areas where self-supporting functional economies are lacking.
Anyone can conveniently drop off shoes at the five sites in Nebraska and Kansas: Lexus of Omaha (13025 W. Dodge Road), Lexus of Lincoln (6500 Telluride Drive), Performance Toyota-Scion of La Vista (7204 S. 124th Circle), Performance Toyota-Scion of Lincoln (6320 Telluride Drive) and Legends Toyota in Kansas City (10100 Parallel Pkwy). The donation boxes will be at the Kansas City, Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska dealerships now through October 7, 2011. Stop by a location near you today!
