Sole Brothers Speak to Community Service Club
The founders of Sole Brothers, a nonprofit that provides shoes for children in need across the globe, recently shared their success story with the Community Service Club. Members and founders of the nonprofit include Seven Hills sophomores Curtis Harrison and Spencer Boyd, as well as their friends, Kellen Newman, Breiland Anderson, and Eric Thompson, who attend other schools. “We collect new and gently used shoes,” Boyd explained to the students. “We’ve helped about 3,000 kids get new shoes.” Sole Brothers has sent shoes to Jamaica, Ghana, and Houston, Texas. They plan to send footwear to Haiti and Puerto Rico for their next project. The visit coincided with National Read Aloud Day, and the boys took turns reading from the new book they recently wrote, Sole Brothers Change the World, to the gathered students. The book tells the story of the founding of Sole Brothers and shares a special message, reminding people that all it takes to change the world is a dream and a friend.
