Giving in Action: Superfeet volunteer round-up

Being involved in the community is an extremely important part of our work at Superfeet — just as important as making insoles.  Every Superfeet employee gets paid time to do volunteer work. Here's a round-up of a few of the places you may have seen Superfeet employees lately. 

This month a team of Superfeet employees helped with assembling and setting up housing units at Martha's Place, a new local facility that will provide permanent supportive housing for households experiencing homelessness and low-income households at risk of homelessness in Skagit County.

In March, a crew of Superfeet volunteers braved cold conditions to help out with conservation work at California Creek Timberline property with the Whatcom Land Trust. The Superfeet team removed 400 square feet of invasive blackberries, which will allow native species to grow.

A team of Superfeet employees from our IT department rolled up their sleeves and helped fill garden beds at the Ferndale Community Garden with new dirt to get ready for the upcoming season.
