Our Impact

From our single, pass-the-hat collection of a few dollars to help one footwear worker and his family avoid eviction from their apartment in 1939, to the $1.4 million in emergency financial support that prevented 610 evictions, kept the heat and lights on for 161 footwear families, and much more in 2021 — Two Ten is committed to lifting up the lives of footwear employees in crisis.
