Andre McDonnell, who works in New York City’s fashion district, began giving away new athletic shoes to homeless people about three years ago, using the personal touch of hand delivery– usually in Grand Central and Penn Stations where many congregate. His one-man charity outreach, “It’s From the Sole,” distributed 4,000 pairs of sneakers last year alone. The inspiration for his work struck the Brooklyn man while he was playing basketball one summer and noticed a homeless man walking in the streets without shoes. Suddenly compelled to help, he walked over and gave the man the shoes off his feet, and a clean pair of socks he had in a bag. He has been “outfitting” the less fortunate ever since.
