Footwear Cares® | April 2014 – A Look Back

Participation in Footwear Cares provided an opportunity for people who work within the industry to come together in a way that forever changed lives; their own and the lives of the people they’ve touched — and in doing so, demonstrated that it isn’t just about the shoes, it’s about the people in those shoes.

As part of Two Ten’s 75th anniversary celebration this year, Footwear Cares, sponsored by Amazon Fashion, was extended to the full month of April. 6,500 volunteers from 100 footwear companies across the country came together in support of 83 charitable non-profits. The impact was amazing.

- 15,000 volunteer hours spent in service
– Half a million meals made available to vulnerable populations
– 12,000 pairs of shoes and outfits provided to low-income kids
– 100 acres of land, shorelines and parks cleaned up

If you think we made a positive impact this year, just wait until 2015. Be part of an industry wide movement to give back and help distinguish footwear as a caring community. Please email Maureen Lederhos at mlederhos@twoten.org to learn how to get involved.
