“We have a strong distribution partner in the Philippines who we have worked with for two decades, and I have heard from numerous members of our Skechers team in the U.S. that they have family in the region impacted by this disaster. With thousands of lives lost and more than half a million homeless, we understand the need for assistance–from food and water to protection for their feet,” says Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers.
