We Are Two Ten Footwear Foundation
OUR MISSION IS TO BRING HOPE AND OPPORTUNITY TO THE PEOPLE OF FOOTWEAR
We provide crisis and hardship relief, mental health counseling, academic scholarships, and resources to help American footwear workers and their families thrive. Two Ten started as a simple gesture of compassion in depression-era 1939, when a group of footwear workers came together at 210 Lincoln Street in Boston to help a colleague who’d fallen on hard times.
In the many years since that first act of kindness, Two Ten has evolved into a national charitable foundation that’s provided millions of dollars in support and services to generations of footwear families.
Two Ten provides emergency financial assistance to footwear employees facing difficult times. Click here to learn more and to access our online application.
Through Two Ten, footwear employees and their immediate families who are in crisis have access to special services and community resources.ACCESS
Two Ten offers college scholarships for eligible footwear families, and design scholarships for industry professionals wishing to advance their careers.APPLY
