In September of 2017, Hav A Sole launched an emergency fundraiser held in Los Angeles for Hurricane Harvey victims. This event took place over an entire weekend and had 75 individuals from the local communities participating in it. Hav A Sole alone donated over 1,500 pairs of shoes while supplies came in by the carloads which were then loaded onto a 53-foot semi-truck and transported to Houston, Texas where it was hand delivered by the Hav A Sole team. Thanks to the efficiency of our programming we responded to this need quickly, creating a way for our supporters to make an impact in a way that was meaningful to them.

Furthermore, Hav A Sole’s story has been so inspiring it has been featured on CBS Hidden Heroes, Nation Swell (mini-documentary) and Nikon not to mention multiple articles in Huffington Post.
