At Timberland, we believe that when we lace up our boots, we can do anything. This stands true even in the wake of a disaster.
After hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria flooded headlines this fall, we made it our mission to help. One way we were able to lend a hand was by sending waterproof boots to equip the Fraternal Order of Police in Houston, as well as to “Save the Children” to support families displaced by the storms. To amplify our impact, our parent company VF donated and matched employee donations to the Red Cross, and one employee even served with the organization for two weeks to help with the immediate relief efforts in Houston. This was a start, but we wanted to do more.
A HABITAT WITH AN IMPACT
The road to recovery for these communities will continue for months and years to come. That’s why, this holiday season, Timberland has teamed up with Habitat for Humanity, an international nonprofit that is active in more than 1,300 communities in the U.S. and another 70 countries worldwide. Currently, Habitat has pledged to help 6,000 hurricane-affected families, and will continue to focus its efforts on home repairs and new construction in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico over the next few years.
But its aspirations don’t stop there. Ultimately, Habitat aims to raise an incredible $100 million to support its storm recovery work. Habitat’s ability to achieve its goals depends on us – and that’s why we’ve laced up to help.
