Non-Profit Organization Outfits the City's Undomeciled With Clean Donated Sneakers

It’s From the Sole is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in New York that has a mission to refurbish donated shoes and re-distribute them to those in need.

It’s From the Sole (IFTS), founded in 2012, distributes donated new and refreshed sneakers, and new socks and outerwear to all those in need. Andre McDonnell, Founder and CEO, was moved to start It’s From the Sole, after a chance encounter with a barefoot homeless gentleman after an event he was attending in SoHo. Overwhelmed with emotion, McDonnell approached the man and offered him the pair of sneakers he was wearing at the time. Moved by the experience to do more, It’s From the Sole was born.
