Superfeet Announces 2020 Local Grant Recipients

Every year, we give 1% of sales and 1,000+ volunteer hours to organizations working to shape a strong foundation for a healthy future.

A big portion of those dollars stay here in the Pacific Northwest, home to Superfeet headquarters for more than 40 years. We're proud to be able to invest in local organizations working tirelessly to make this community a better place.  Congratulations to all our 2020 local grant recipients.
