BOBS from SKECHERS embraced the holiday spirit of giving with three shoe donation events during the month of December!
The first was in SKECHERS’ backyard (Los Angeles, California) on December 14 with the Baby2Baby charitable organization. Children and families in need were invited to attend Baby2Baby’s third annual Holiday Party where they received gifts and a new pair of BOBS shoes to decorate. Santa Claus made an appearance as well, and children enjoyed holiday crafts, treats and music, plus a complimentary lunch with their families.
Next, we traveled across the U.S. for two BOBS donation events in New Orleans. Teaming up with BOBS retail partner Shoe Carnival, volunteers visited the Slidell-Pearl River Head Start organization for a holiday donation event on December 16. Santa Claus made a surprise appearance, and children received new pairs of SKECHERS socks and school supplies with their BOBS shoes.
And finally, a visit to Kingsley House in New Orleans, a charitable organization that has been serving the community since 1896. Children received BOBS shoes to decorate, plus new socks, school supplies and another surprise visit from Santa. In total, 2,400 pairs of new shoes were distributed in New Orleans through our BOBS charitable partner Fashion Delivers.
We’re looking forward to even more BOBS donation events in 2014 – stay tuned!
