On Halloween Eve, The Salvation Army in West Harlem, NY was filled with lots of happy, yelling kids, running around, eating candy, painting pumpkins and posing as their favorite Super Heroes.
Not to be outdone, we brought our own team of Footwear Cares “Super Heroes” who helped set up the gym, decorate tables, pass out candy, paint side by side with the kids and even demonstrate bobbing for apples, that old funny party trick. Superheroes from Kenneth Cole Productions, Footwear Plus Magazine, FIT, White Line, Tommy Bahama and Two Ten suited up and enjoyed a Fall Harvest party with close to one hundred children from both the Salvation Army’s Afterschool Program and the surrounding neighborhood.
We met new Footwear Cares volunteers and connected with old Two Ten friends. One volunteer commented that they love coming out to volunteer events like this because, as a team, you get to do something different together.
Footwear Cares volunteer events with The Salvation Army have been a recent, but amazing pairing. We have been able to connect with hundreds of children in both New York City and Boston, providing shoes, candy, and memories for all involved.
Thank you again to our most recent set of volunteers, and we look for more large Footwear Cares events after the holidays!
