4th Annual 100 Boot Challenge
We are excited to launch our fourth annual 100 Boot Challenge! As our annual holiday campaign, the 100 Boot Challenge is a meaningful way to help workers get back on their feet and back to work.
Everyday at EMBERS, we work with people who have faced setbacks in their lives. Whether they are recovering from addictions, leaving the prison system, or have other barriers to employment, EMBERS Staffing Solutions opens the door to meaningful work.
A pair of proper work boots is key to accessing employment opportunities and regular pay — almost all of our work sites require boots. More than just a safety tool, work boots are the first step toward self-sufficiency and self-worth. With most of our workers borrowing equipment from us, we currently purchase over 60 pairs of boots every three months to make sure people have the gear they need.
Last year’s 100 Boot Challenge raised roughly $16,000 or enough for 160 boots. This year, our goal is to raise $20,000 for 200 boots.
Want to participate in the 100 Boot Challenge? Here are ways you can help:
- Donate $100 to help us purchase a pair of boots for a worker in need.
- Donate a pair of new or gently used steel-toed work boots (all sizes needed!).
- Get your friends or co-workers together and consider making a group donation.
- Share our 100 Boot Challenge over social media.
The 100 Boot Challenge will wrap up on Monday, January 8. Between now and then, we will post quotes and stories from our workers whose lives have changed through hard work. Keep updated on this campaign through our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, and consider making a donation today.
