Environmental Office To Help Charity

The Cookeville office of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation will host a shoe collection drive this month to support "Soles4Souls," a Nashville-based charity that facilitates the donation of shoes to those in need worldwide. TDEC will provide a shoe collection station at their regional field office, located at 1221 South Willow Avenue, for a two week period beginning November 9th and going through November 20th, 2009. TDEC staff, state employees in other nearby offices, as well as the general public in the surrounding communities are invited to participate. The event is being held in conjunction with America Recycles Day on November 15th -- as a way to both promote recycling awareness, as well as to support a charitable cause.
