Days of Giving
Back-to-School Bash with the Minnesota Vikings in Eagan, MN
Tradehome Shoes partnered with the Minnesota Vikings and Under Armour to prepare local foster kids to get ready for back to school. We fit more than 500 kids with shoes, backpacks, and socks. In addition to Vikings Players and Staff, a handful of Tradehome Store Managers, Regional Supervisors, and Home Office staff volunteered to help bring the event to life.
"Seeing the smiles on all the kids' and parents' faces was so rewarding. What an awesome event!"
Boys & Girls Club
in Evansville, IN
"We volunteered at the boys and girls club. Spent 3 hours wrapping gifts and finished our final donation for our store. In the past month we have donated 810 socks, 10 hours of our time, and wrapped hundreds of gifts for kids!"

Feed My Starving Children
"My family and I really enjoyed being able to help out the children who don't have food to eat. We take for granted all the blessings we have. It was especially fun to have my children participate, see, and hear how excited they were after they were done being able to make a difference. It's amazing to think in a few hours of working, that a team can feed 20 children for a year."
- Mark Jacobson (Eagan, MN)
Heaven's Helpers Soup Cafe

- Jon Skudlarek (Regional Supervisor)
“It was a great experience to get out and give back to the community. Not only did it allow me to meet up with an old friend of mine, but it gave me the chance to meet new faces. I will definitely be back out with this group for their future events.”
- Cody Beavers (Cottage Grove, Minnesota)
