What is Two Ten Day?
It’s an annual celebration of our industry’s own Two Ten Footwear Foundation and the support and services we provide to you and your footwear colleagues across the country.

Who can get involved?
Anyone and everyone! This is an opportunity for individuals and companies in the footwear industry to rally with their teams and host a Two Ten celebration. Use your celebration as a way to raise awareness of and support for Two Ten’s programs and services.

  • Create and sell candygrams so your coworkers can send to others to express their appreciation
  • Encourage your team to give a token amount in honor of Two Ten: $2.10, $19.39, $77, etc.
  • Ask if your company will consider donating a portion of your business’s proceeds for the day (or week!)

Two Ten Day Success Story: “It really isn’t hard to get our associates to donate. Many here have used Two Ten for your financial assistance program and want to donate because of your generosity. Some donate because they want to “pay it forward”. Others donate because they have seen what Two Ten has done for their fellow associates here at work. Besides Team Edition, I’ve never worked with a company where the associates are so giving.” Foot Locker Team Edition HR Coordinator

When is it?
The “official” Two Ten Day is 2.10.17, but any time is a good time for a Two Ten Day celebration!
