Shoe Donation Helps Those On The Road To Recovery

Irving-based Shoebacca recently donated 400 pairs of shoes, 170 pairs of socks, 150 pairs of men’s underwear and 514 pieces of apparel totaling $50,000 in value to Dallas 24 Hour Club. Shoebacca is a full-scale online retail footwear company dedicated to helping customers and their families lead active, healthy lifestyles.

“We understand the impact of a helping hand, but more importantly recognize the gift of a hand up. The 24 Hour Club gives refuge to those who are wanting to help themselves out of addiction and into recovery. No family is untouched from the strain addiction so we could not think of a better place to give to! We hope the best for everyone that enters the club and comes out better for it.” Marc, Robert, & Ryan Schlachter, Shoebacca.

Residents of Dallas 24 Hour Club enjoy new shoes from Shoebacca

Dallas 24 Hour Club was founded in 1969 by Lee Tillman to have a place open 24 hours per day for individuals suffering from alcoholism and drug addiction who were seeking help. Over the next 50 years, Dallas 24 Hour Club grew to offer housing, the first with 6 beds for homeless men only, to their current facility, which has 75 beds, services for both men and women, and hosts (37) 12-Step Recovery Meetings each week. They are available for the suffering alcoholic or drug addict 24 hours each day, 365 days each year, thus the name Dallas 24 Hour Club.

“With this extremely generous donation from Shoebacca, we have been able to hand each resident a brand new pair of shoes, socks and tops. Having a new clothing set is so meaningful and rewarding. We are so grateful to Shoebacca for making our residents feel so special.” said Colleen Quinn, Assistant Program Manager for the Dallas 24 Hour Club.

Dallas 24 Hour Club is located at 4636 Ross Ave, Dallas, TX 75204, 214-823-3200,
