1,000 Children Reviece New Pairs of Shoes through SKECHERS Partnership

Meijer and SKECHERS teamed up earlier this week to give away new pairs of BOBS from SKECHERS shoes to 1,000 Indianapolis children in need, during a day of fun at Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center – the practice complex of the Indianapolis Colts.

“Meijer was built on a fundamental philosophy of supporting the communities where our customers and team members work and live,” said Lynn Hempe, group vice president of softlines for the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer. “We’ve worked with SKECHERS for a decade, and are thrilled to bring that partnership to another level by providing children with a brand new pair of shoes that they can call their own. It was a fun day for everyone involved.”

Since the BOBS from SKECHERS program launched in 2011, SKECHERS has donated more than 8 million pairs of new shoes to children in need in more than 30 countries worldwide.
