Ronco Construction’s employee-sponsored philanthropic program Ronco Gives is hosting a shoe drive to benefit Soles4Souls who turn new or gently used shoes into opportunities.
Ronco Gives, the employee-sponsored philanthropic program at Ronco Construction, a leading Midwest construction company, is hosting a shoe drive now through November 30, 2023, to collect new or gently used shoes for Soles4Souls.
“Ronco was introduced to Soles4Souls a few years ago and we’re excited to kick off our first shoe drive to support their efforts,” explains Ashley Nelsen, Ronco Construction’s accounting and strategic initiatives manager and the Ronco Gives committee chair. “In 2021, Ronco Gives hosted a food drive and with the support of local businesses and our employees, we filled one of our semi-trailers with food. We’re hoping we can do the same with shoes.”
