FERNDALE, Wash. (March 10, 2020) – Superfeet, a 100% employee-owned company, continues to build on its commitment to make a positive difference in people’s lives. Each year, the company donates 1% of sales and more than 1000 volunteer hours to non-profit organizations working tirelessly to make the world a better place.
In alignment with the company’s purpose to shape strong foundations, and their vision to bring out the awesome in everyone, it seemed a natural fit to announce this year’s Superfeet grant recipients today, March 10th, universally recognized as the official International Day of Awesomeness.
