The United Way of King County’s Community Resource Exchange was to be held on October 18th, a place where over 100 service providers for needy men and women are located under one roof. We were planning to go but our men’s shoe supply was so low that a week from the event, we had thought there would be no possible way for us to attend.
The word was circulated through many networks and social media platforms and one Brooks Sports employee took notice. On Friday 6 days prior to the event a large cargo truck pulled in from of our distribution center. When we went out to view the load it was to our astonishment that the truck was filled full of large boxed of shoes. Each box contained 15 – 20 pairs of shoes and there was 125 boxes.
We would like to thank Brooks Sports for their caring hearts for Seattle needy soles. Your kindness made it possible to not only attend the event but to put 1,031 pairs of new shoes on homeless and underprivileged men and women’s feet.
Your slogan of “Run Happy” that day was “Happy Feet”. The smiles of those leaving with their new Brooks running shoes was awesome to witness.
Thanks Brooks Sports!!!
