Blackie's Bulldog Tavern is Committed to Giving Back
We know there are many worthy
organizations and fundraisers looking for as much local
support as possible. While we wish we could help
everyone, we simply cannot.
We have decided to adopt a specific
charity where a bulk of our philanthropy dollars will go
directly. This AMAZING organization is Gotta Have Sole.
We encourage all to visit their website at
www.gottahavesole.org to learn more about what this
truly inspiring young man has created with the help of
his family. This from the Gotta Have Sole website:
"... I saw children in homeless
shelters in RI who didn’t have shoes or had shoes
that were used and falling apart. Some had to share
footwear with a family member and missed school
because it wasn’t their turn to wear the shoes that
day, and others had sores on their feet from wearing
shoes that didn’t fit them properly. I was
devastated by this and wanted to help the children
however I could. I started donating my gently used
clothing and footwear but often didn’t have the
correct sizes for the children. I knew that the only
shoes that would fit them best would be new,
correctly sized ones and hoped someday I would be
able to donate these."
The Blackie's staff is committed to
helping Nicholas's charity succeed in ensuring that no
child living in shelters will be without shoes.
