Attention anyone with a closet: Those shoes you no longer want are desperately needed to fight the human tragedy of global poverty. Thatís the message being delivered by American tennis star, Sloane Stephens and the Volvo Car Open, which has launched a drive to collect 5,000 shoes to help achieve positive change, both humanitarian and economic, via Soles4Souls. Starting now, used and new shoes can be dropped off at the Family Circle Tennis Center, 161 Seven Farms Drive, and all O2 Fitness Clubs located in the Charleston area. During the Volvo Car Open, April 1st Ė 9th donation boxes will be at the front gates. For each person that donates a pair of shoes, the Volvo Car Open will provide a voucher redeemable at its box office for two general admission tickets during the tournament.
