(DALLAS, Texas) — 91.7 The TRUTH (KVTT) and Shoes for Orphan Souls® will host a free concert and event featuring Jaci Velasquez on Saturday, Sept. 27 from 1-5 p.m. to collect shoes and raise awareness about the needs of more than 143 million orphans around the world.
The second annual ‘Sole-d Out’ concert will feature Christian music headliner Jaci Velasquez, along with artists Geoff Moore, Epic Press and Pure NRG.
“There are children everywhere who get by each day without a pair of shoes,” said Doug Price, 91.7 The TRUTH general manager. “It’s a simple thing, but having a pair or not having a pair could be the difference between having a disease or not having a disease; between getting a sore on your foot or not. A pair of shoes really can make a huge impact in a child’s life.”
‘Sole-d Out’ is a month-long collection on 91.7 The Truth which encourages listeners to collect new shoes for distribution to orphans and children living in poverty in more than 60 countries around the world, including the United States.
The ‘Sole-d Out’ concert is the final celebration, where those who have participated in the drive can deliver shoes and enjoy free, music, bounce houses, face painting and more.
This family-oriented concert and event is open to the entire Dallas/Fort Worth community and is located at the Buckner Center for Humanitarian Aid, 5405 Shoe Drive (near Buckner Blvd. and Samuell).
Since 1999, Shoes for Orphan Souls has distributed more than 1.6 million pairs of shoes to orphans in more than 60 countries around the world, including the United States. Shoes for Orphan Souls is the largest humanitarian aid effort of Dallas-based Buckner International, a global non-profit organization that supports orphans, at-risk children and families.
