The workers of Ontario’s UPS Facilities have hearts and minds that are intent on giving back to the community they live and work in. 150 pairs of shoes came to the Shoes That Fit headquarters as part of the United Way campaign at UPS, a gift for 150 lucky local children in need, as they head off to school. Our staff spoke to the workers as they began their work day over the course of several days, and they all stepped up to the challenge of helping make the first day of school special for children living in poverty. We thank these big hearted fellows for their compassion and get-it-done action.
