Exsel Advertising donated $500 to the Two Ten Foundation’s Footwear Warrior Scholarship Fund. The donation was made possible through Exsel Advertising employees who combined efforts to raise money for the charitable foundation. The Footwear Warriors Scholarship promotes vocational and higher education among Veterans currently employed, or returning to work in the footwear industry after their tour of duty.
“Through friends, family, the media, we are often reminded of the challenges our veterans face upon returning home,” explains Rich Suitum, president Exsel Advertising. “One major challenge is having the ability to return to civilian work. When we heard about this scholarship fund from our friends at Two-Ten and Quabaug Corporation, we were eager to donate what we could to support our veterans in life after service.”
In addition to the scholarship fund, Two Ten Footwear Foundation will identify a small number of special partners that will help expand job placement opportunities for Veterans in the footwear industry.
