01 Dec Stride Rite Donates More Than 150,000 Pairs of Shoes to Soles4Souls in 2016
Stride Rite stepped up in a big way for Soles4Souls this year.
The Boston-based children’s brand collected and donated more than 150,000 pairs of shoes for the industry nonprofit. Throughout 2016, Stride Rite hosted a series of seasonal donation drives, encouraging its customers to drop off new or gently used footwear to Soles4Souls bins located in its stores across the country.
During the back-to-school season alone, the brand collected nearly 60,000 pairs for donation to children around the world. In addition, it donated 1 percent of the net profits from its back-to-school shoe sales to the charity. Looking to build on that success, Stride Rite has renewed its partnership with Soles4Souls for 2017.
