Burnham Benefits partners with Soles4Souls to provide 1,000+ pairs of shoes to homeless youth

IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Burnham Benefits Insurance Services, LLC, a national full-service strategic consulting and brokerage firm, today announced the launch of their 4EveryKid initiative in partnership with the non-profit organization Soles4Souls to benefit homeless youth living in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.

Burnham plans to raise $20,000 to provide at least 1,000 pairs of new athletic shoes to homeless students in need throughout the school year. The company will also match every donation, dollar for dollar up to $10,000. The company has raised over $4,500, equivalent to 255 pairs of new athletic shoes.

Burnham’s 4EveryKid fundraiser is open to public contributions and will close on August 31. A link to the donation page can be found here.

As an extension of their giving, the company will also host an internal shoe drive to benefit Soles4Souls’ mission to break the cycle of poverty for children and adults in need around the globe. Employees at nine Burnham sites in California will collect new and lightly used shoes, which Burnham will then ship to Soles4Souls for sorting and distribution.

Burnham’s Regional President Kristen Allison said, “The message of 4EveryKid is that one simple act of kindness can mean a big step forward for someone else — this is at the heart of Soles4Souls as well. Our team is honored to join forces to provide meaningful opportunities for our community members, as well as communities in need around the world.”
