A breakdown by Two Ten President Neal Newman reveals the great volunteering work being done industry wide. It all adds up!
With Shoes.com support, Footwear Cares met its goals for 2018, and the bar has been raised for 2019. Newman says this year’s plans include:
“There is no better way to express your personal and corporate values than community service,” Newman says. “Shoes.com is a delight to work with and their commitment to volunteerism and service is thrilling to be part of. Our Footwear Cares media partner, Footwear Plus, continues to give this initiative the visibility and energy it deserves.”
While a recent report in Forbes cited that volunteerism is the fastest growing employee engagement and team building activation in the U.S., Newman notes the footwear industry is still the only industry in the U.S. that engages in community service under a collective, organized effort like Footwear Cares. It’s a terrific example of cooperation for a greater good—something our country could use a lot more of right now!
“Thank you to everyone who volunteered and made a difference in their communities,” Newman says.
