95% of our Workers Use our Free Equipment Rental Service
At EMBERS Staffing Solutions, we help thousands of people facing employment barriers lead productive, fulfilling lives by offering economic and employment opportunities—including job placements, training, and support. One of the ways we support our workers is by providing free equipment rentals, including steel-toed work boots.
Almost all of our jobs require work boots and 95% of our workers borrow equipment from us.
This means that we purchase over 60 pairs of new boots every three months. Each year, we ask our community to help even more workers put their best foot forward by donating to our 100 Boot Challenge, a 10-week fundraiser to help us purchase work boots for our EMBERS Staffing Solutions workers.
In 2017 alone, EMBERS Staffing Solutions placed 1,900 people on job sites, paid out 6.4 million dollars in salaries and benefits to workers, and sponsored training for over 250 workers. When you donate to the 100 Boot Challenge, you help EMBERS continue empowering people to overcome the employment barriers they face.
People like like Daniel who was facing challenges such as drug use, poverty, mental issues, making rent payments, and burned bridges when he came to EMBERS. Now he is learning and earning more and “feels good a the end of his days of hard work.”
Just $100 provides a worker with the boots they need to get back to work.
Donate today or drop off a pair of steel-toed work boots to one of our offices. Any amount helps and all sizes needed!
