There was a line through the parking lot and down the street when the doors opened for a recent shoe-giveaway event in Hagerstown, MD. Partnering with Super Shoes, BOBS from Skechers donated over 1,000 pairs of shoes to local children through the charities Children in Need and Delivering Good.
Volunteers from Children In Need, BOBS from Skechers, and Super Shoes fit hundreds of children for their own pair of BOBS by Skechers shoes. The children then had the opportunity to turn their new shoes into their very own custom artwork. The kids’ enthusiasm was contagious, and quite a few up-and-coming Picassos were discovered in the room! In addition, with the partnership of Delivering Good and Children In Need, each family was provided with food to take home that evening.
This event was rewarding not only for the families, but for the staff at Super Shoes as well. One employee commented, “This is the first time I’ve done something like this, and it was life-changing. It was such an amazing experience for me and it was so rewarding to be able to help others. It really put things in perspective for me, and for my daughter. I’m so glad I got to be a part of this!”
