What’s In a Pair of Work Boots?
Most of us take work for granted. We grumble when Sunday evening rolls around and we have to start thinking about the workweek ahead. We forget that work is much more than a pay cheque.
Work gives us a sense of community.
Work makes us feel productive.
Work ensures we can pay for rent, groceries and the personal interests and hobbies that make a life.
Every day at EMBERS Staffing Solutions we meet people who understand the value of a job and are working hard to change their lives through the power of work. Whether they are recovering from addictions, leaving the prison system, or facing other barriers to employment, EMBERS Staffing Solutions provides access to meaningful work.
They just need a little support to get back on their feet and back to work.
For EMBERS Staffing Solutions workers, a pair of work boots is essential to starting a new job. Boots are our worker’s version of a professional outfit for an office job, or access to transit for a daily commute.
Work boots open the door to steady work opportunities, a regular paycheque, and a greater sense of self-worth and value.
With over 100 people going to work every day through EMBERS Staffing Solutions, we need your help to ensure we can continue to outfit workers with the gear and equipment they need to be successful.
Help EMBERS Staffing Solutions workers get back on their feet and back to work by supporting the 100 Boot Challenge. You can donate:
- $100 to purchase a pair of boots for a worker in need
- A pair of new or gently used steel-toed work boots (all sizes needed!)
