We Are Two Ten Footwear Foundation
WE IMPROVE THE LIVES AND CAREERS OF AMERICA'S FOOTWEAR COMMUNITY
Two Ten Footwear Foundation has been supporting and uniting America’s footwear industry since Depression-era 1939, when a group of footwear workers came together at 210 Lincoln Street in Boston to help a colleague who had fallen on hard times.
Nearly 80 years later, Two Ten now serves a national workforce of 300,000 employees and their families with support, services and programs that improve their lives and careers, while ensuring a healthy future for the next generation of our industry.SUPPORT US LEARN MORE ABOUT US
