Zio Sport Outfits Children in Haiti

Active wear company donates $38K of clothing to Clothes4Souls


AUSTIN, Texas – Children’s active wear company, Zio Sport, has
shipped more than 26 boxes of clothing to Clothes4Souls. The non-profit organization will then send the apparel to the children of Haiti. The Caribbean nation was ravaged by a devastating earthquake last year.

“The kids in Haiti still need our help,” Zio Sport President and Co-founder, Ragan Melton said. “These kids have nothing. Clothes4Souls will ensure that the children of Haiti receive much-needed clothing. Clothes4Souls focuses on children, just like we do here at Zio Sport.”

Zio Sport’s donation included shirts, shorts and pullovers. The donation totaled nearly $38,000.

Clothes4Souls gives free clothing to those in need in the United States and around the world. Clothes4Souls works with manufacturers, designers and retailers to donate unused inventory instead of destroying it.

Clothes4Souls is a division of Soles4Souls, which collects new and gently-worn footwear for people in need. Since 2005, Soles4Souls has distributed more than 10 million pairs of shoes to people in 125 countries, including the United States.
