McDougal Companies and a noted charity for orphans are teaming up to help some children over the holiday season.

McDougal Companies has teamed with Buckner International for the “Shoes for Orphan Souls” program, which has been running low on donations. Shoe shipments to children around the world have been delayed due to the lack of shoes being donated to the program.

Buckner International, a Dallas-based charity, has set a goal of delivering 150,000 pairs of shoes around the world this year, but are around 80,000 pairs short.

Mike McDougal, President of McDougal Companies said “It’s hard to imagine a child living without shoes. We are encouraging our staff and residents to join the Lubbock community in this campaign to drop off donations of shoes at any of our properties around the city.”

The main collection points are:

  • McDougal Plaza – 5001 West Loop 289
  • Court Place Office Building – 1001 Main Street
  • Wells Fargo Office Building – 1500 Broadway – Suite 505

Other collection points include:

  • Ashton Pointe – 308 Frankford Avenue
  • The Centre – 2400 Glenna Goodacre Boulevard
