This weekend, our CEO and President, Steve Leidholdt, will be taking part in the Water Walk Challenge, an educational event organized by the Shoeman Water Projects, where participants will learn what it’s like to carry containers full of water during a 5 mile walk. This experience showcases the difficulties that millions of people in developing countries face in order to get fresh water and bring it back to their families.
STL Communications believes in giving back to the community as much as possible and we’ve worked with the Shoeman Water Projects, an organization committed to alleviating global water poverty, for many years. Not only do we donate technical services to this organization in order to support their cause, but we also collect new and gently-used shoes to contribute to their goal of providing shoes to local communities, create jobs and provide educational opportunities.
“Shoeman Water Projects’ main focus is to provide clean water in communities in developing countries. We have generated revenue to fund these water projects by collecting new and gently used shoes. Our shoe collection efforts improve our planet by keeping wearable, usable shoes out of local landfills and directing them to a secondary market for reuse both locally and globally.” – http://www.shoemanwater.org/
