Two Ten Footwear Foundation
The Two Ten Footwear Foundation is the only industry-centric foundation in the country. Two Ten provides emergency financial assistance, natural disaster recovery, educational scholarships, counseling services, and professional development programs that improve the lives and careers of the country’s 330,000 footwear employees and their families. Since 2015, OrthoLite has partnered with the Two Ten Footwear Foundation to support the footwear industry and footwear industry families facing catastrophic situations such as homelessness, family violence, and natural disasters.
OrthoLite and the Barrett Family donations have helped hundreds of families get back on their feet after facing dire situations. OrthoLite CEO and Chairman Glenn Barrett joined the Two Ten Board of Directors in 2017 and have since answered the call to action, including helping to provide generators for families in Puerto Rico who were affected by Hurricane Maria and actively supporting the newly-formed Two Ten Associate Board by supporting their fundraising events.
On December 5th, 2018, Mr. Barrett will be honored as one of a select group of “Two Ten Heros” during the annual Two Ten Gala in NYC.
