)-- Rich Van Tassel, president of Royal Oaks Building Group, LLC (http://www.royaloaksbg.com), has announced that the company is hosting a Share Our Shoes (SOS) donation drive to benefit victims of the Japan earthquake and Tsunami until Monday, May 2 at the firm’s office located at 1210 Trinity Road. Through this initiative, Royal Oaks has partnered with SOS of Raleigh to accept donations of new and gently worn shoes of any type, size and style. Shoes that are not sent to benefit Japan’s cause will be redirected to other communities in need. SOS is a nonprofit foundation dedicated to helping those in desperate need of shoes, preventing health-related issues that arise as a result of a lack of proper footwear.

“As a provider of homes, the opportunity for us in the Triangle to help others who have suffered devastation in their communities the way the people of Japan have been impacted is important,” said Van Tassel. “Keep in mind that no matter what kind or size of shoes you donate, they will all be sent to someone in need.”
