    ADS kicked off the work week with an official count of shoes collected for a recent Soles4Souls shoe drive. Employees divided into three teams - Corporate, Central Station and Nashville Branch - and competed for the title of “most shoes collected”. Central Station emerged as the winner with a total of 114 pairs donated. Collectively, ADS employees proudly donated 267 pairs of shoes to Soles4Souls.
