BOBS from SKECHERS Donates more than 1,000 Pairs of New Shoes to Homeless Children in L.A.

Orsi Public Relations and BOBS from SKECHERS were out in force this weekend at the Los Angeles Mission End of Summer Block Party. For more than a decade, the block party has been a tradition where kids can play, have fun and forget about the challenging circumstances their families face on a daily basis. In addition, caring companies like BOBS from SKECHERS donate essentials such as the 1,000 pairs of new children’s shoes.

As the kids lined up, the BOBS from SKECHERS Street Team, along with help from celebrities Brandon Molale (True Blood) and Olden Polynice (NBA), distributed the shoes to those who waited patiently.  These children face homelessness, poverty and hunger on a daily basis, but thanks to The L.A. Mission and BOBS from SKECHERS they were able to walk away with a new pair of shoes.

The BOBS program, which gives a pair to a child in need for every BOBS footwear purchase, has donated more than one million pairs of new shoes to children in need in the U.S. and around the world.

Orsi PR made sure their good deeds did not go unnoticed and secured coverage of this important event with local news stations such as KTLA and KMEX, as well as several online news sites, blogs and even celebrities like Brooke Burke-Charvet tweeted about the donation day.
