Two Ten Social Impact Award
The Two Ten Social Impact Award recognizes an individual or company who makes giving back to the community a priority. The honoree has taken extraordinary steps to deepen Two Ten Footwear Foundation’s social impact and expand our historic and compassionate “pass the hat” spirit of the footwear community, in order to positively change the lives of footwear
employees and their families who need a helping hand. This is a new award that was activated in 2015 to recognize both individuals and companies who display a deep affinity with Two Ten’s legacy, and champion fresh thinking and philanthropic leadership today.
