Lifestyle brand Bearpaw and its e-commerce partner, Sportif USA, teamed up with Hosanna Home in Reno, NV, to help women in need. The companies will donate 100 pairs of shoes to the organization which encourages homeless women to make positive changes in their lives with programs that promote mental and physical health, while teaching successful life skills.
“Oftentimes we are consumed with our day to day, but it’s important to take a step back and remember that there are people in need right in our backyard,” says Tom Romeo, founder of Bearpaw. Tom Willliamson, Sportif’s vice president of marketing sales, echoes this sentiment. “It’s always been our philosophy to give more than what is received.”
“Hosanna Home is a place where broken women have the opportunity to make a new start,” says Joy Corkill of Hosanna Home. “The donation of warm footwear will help make our residents’ lives easier while they are diligently seeking employment every day in the cold winter.”
