September 2, 2010

Voorhees College, along with Representative Bakari T. Sellers, recently hosted a "Voorhees Got Soul" shoe drive for the Bamberg county area.  

An assortment of shoe sizes for men, women and children were available at no charge to the community.

"During these harsh economic times, it is important for all of us to help out those who are less fortunate than we are," said Rep. Sellers.

"Through this great community effort, we were able to collect more than 250 pairs of shoes to donate to families in the Bamberg county area.  I appreciate everyone who came out to support such a worthy cause."

The remaining shoes left were donated to the Salvation Army.
