Soles4Souls, a global non-profit that provides shoes to people who can't afford them, has started their 2013 shoe drive in Lexington.

Now through December 31 you can drop off new or gently used shoes to the following locations:

-Simpson Optical, 340 Meijer Way
-Republic Bank, 2401 Harrodsburg Road
-Columbus Steakhouse, 2750 Richmond Road

It's estimated 300 million children worldwide live without shoes on their feet, which affects their health and well-being. Without proper footwear many children will not be permitted in school and others will be infected with soil-transmitted parasitic diseases.

The shoe drive is being spearheaded by the organization AreUKind.org. To date, Soles4Souls has distributed over 20 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries.

For more information about the drive you can visit www.soles4souls.org/citywide.
