In late May, Envestnet delivered shoes to 85 students at Andrew Jackson School in Philadelphia.
Envestnet provides analytics integration tools for financial advisors, allowing them to conquer complexity and invest with confidence. With offices across the country, Envestnet wanted to give back, and the Philadelphia office employees were glad to help out a local school.
The Envestnet team began the delivery with a special activity. They asked the kids what they would like to redesign within their school or their life. The kids voted to redesign shoes! They came up with some great ideas like having shoes with different modes so you could run faster or slower and shoes that are super light. Then the kids got to design the shoes with Play-Doh! It was a great way to get kids thinking outside the box, being creative, and solving problems.
After that activity, the shoeboxes came out and the kids got to open their new shoes!
“Shoes That Fit is leading an important initiative. We are proud to partner with them to invest in our community. It is meaningful. It is impactful. It is making a difference” shared Bill Crager, Chief Executive of Envestnet Wealth.
