Promotion Yields $8,000 Donation to Alleviate Poverty Worldwide
SR Max donates $1 for each pair of safety shoes sold to Whole Foods Whole Planet Foundation
Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
Poverty is everyone's concern – and though SR Max is primarily focused on making slip resistant shoes to protect employees at work, it's a company that also recognizes the importance of taking care of those who cannot help themselves.
That's why SR Max teamed up with Whole Foods to donate $1 for every pair of safety shoes purchased in November and December back to the company's Whole Planet Foundation. The partnership yielded an $8,000 donation – a rounded-up amount resulting from 7,894 pairs of shoes sold during the two-month promotion.
The funds will be used to support the Whole Planet Foundation's focus of making microloans to thousands of people with the goal of lifting them out of poverty.
“We are very happy to have the opportunity to give back in this unique manner,” said Pat Kubis, President of SR Max. “As a family-owned company, we know how important it is to take care of those who need some extra help. To be able to help in such a direct way, via the Whole Planet Foundation, is something we can all believe in.”
