National Footwear Company Helps Palm Harbor Teachers Pamper Feet
PALM HARBOR, FL — While the beginning of the school year normally brings excitement, this school year has brought a bit more stress for teachers who are learning to adapt to new school environments with coronavirus restrictions.
During this time, OOFOS, the global recovery footwear company, is taking a moment to recognize these teachers and show its appreciation for teachers’ persistence in continuing to teach kids throughout these difficult times – both in person and virtually.
To say thank yOO, OOFOS launched a giveback program to lend support and reduce some stress for the teachers heading into the new school year. Starting last Friday and running throughout the end of September, OOFOS launched a Teacher Appreciation Donation program, in which the brand worked with its local community ambassadors, brand partners and professional athlete affiliates to provide donations to local schools throughout the United States.
In the first round, OOFOS’ Teacher Appreciation Donation program donated more than 1,400 shoes to local schools through including Plato Academy Palm Harbor, Timberlin Creek Elementary School, Mills Creek Academy in St. Augustine, and Florida Cyber Charter Academy and Episcopal School of Jacksonville-Beaches Campus in Jacksonville.
In the second phase of this program beginning this weekend, OOFOS has committed to donate more than 1,300 pairs of shoes to an additional 11 schools across the country, bringing the total donations to almost 3,000 shoes to 25 schools nationwide.
OOFOS is working with a number of professional athletes to give back to communities that are important to them including OOFOS brand partner and pro football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, member of the NWSL’s Champion’s Cup-winning Houston Dash team, Jamia Fields, and world Indoor T&F Championship medalist, Jarret Eaton.
As the global leader in recovery footwear, many teachers in academia are already familiar with OOFOS, as their shoes are often worn by teachers, nurses and other professionals who spend long days on their feet helping others. In fact, OOFOS’ full product line just received the APMA Seal of Acceptance recognizing that these products promote good foot health to keep yOO feeling your best all day long.
