Soles4Souls, the international shoe charity, announced today that the Keller Logistics Group, Inc., located at 24862 Elliott Road Defiance, OH 43512, will now serve as a donation processing center for the charity.  The warehouse will be a convenient shipping location for donors in Ohio.   “Keller Logistics Group, Inc. is a family owned company since 1978 which operates 100 semi-tractors, 300 light weight 53 foot plate trailers, 600,000 sq. ft. of warehouse in Defiance, OH, Dallas, TX, Jacksonville, FL and Maumee, OH and a 3PL freight brokerage with offices in OH and IL,” said Bryan Keller.  “Our motto is "Time is money, but Life is Priceless".  We believe in doing the right thing no matter the cost.”

“We, at Keller, partnered with Holy Cross Catholic School of Defiance, to collect shoes for S4S,”said Keller.  “This organization really struck a cord with all of us that we are recycling our goods for the benefit of others.  We want to continue doing that and helping S4S continue their mission.”

Soles4Souls’ current World Outreach Headquarters center is in Roanoke, Alabama, but they are excited about the new donation warehouse, which will provide Ohio donors a more convenient and cost-effective alternative in shipping to their Alabama or Tennessee locations.  Keller Logistics Group, Inc. is proud to offer Soles4Souls a place to ship and store their donations, while giving more individuals the opportunity to participate in the impact Soles4Souls is having around the world.

“Soles4Souls is dedicated to our partners, and we are always seeking more efficient ways to serve those who support our mission,” said Wayne Elsey, founder and CEO of Soles4Souls, Inc.  “With the help of Keller Logistics Group, Inc., we will now have a convenient location for our Florida partners to get engaged and help us change the world with the gift of shoes.”

Keller Logistics Group, Inc. will receive the donated footwear, sort into specific categories, and ready for shipment to Soles4Souls main outreach distribution center. This step will make the Alabama facility much more efficient in responding to needs in the US and overseas.
