“After seeing people walking the streets of Phoenix, without anything on their feet, I knew I had to do something to help...  


With the support of my team and the X-Factor, the best fans in the WNBA, I am confident that together we will be able to make a difference and help those in need.”

- Brittney Griner


BG'S Heart & Sole Shoe Drive

BG's Heart & Sole Shoe Drive was an initiative that started in 2016 when Phoenix Mercury Center, Brittney Griner noticed that many of the homeless individuals across the Valley were without shoes and wanted to help.

With the help of the X-Factor, teammates, and the Phoenix Rescue Mission, BG and the Phoenix Mercury have been able to donate new and gently used shoes to those in need for two seasons.
