Last month, Timberland PRO celebrated its 10th year of sponsorship at the 2011 SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference in Kansas City, MO. The following slideshow features highlights from the week, including some of the activities that took place at the Timberland booth of the SkillsUSA “TechSpo,” and inspirational images from our annual day of service.
Our service numbers speak for themselves:
- 200 volunteers served at the Westside Urban Orchard, one of the nation’s largest community orchards. Their efforts will yield $60,000 in annual fruit production for the orchard.
- 185 volunteers served at the Harvester’s Food Network, a food bank that feeds over 60,000 people every week. Our volunteers packed up enough food to prepare 18,132 meals for the community and stuffed 1,500 backpacks to feed local children.
- In addition to service day activities,Timberland PRO sponsored a virtual food drive with Harvesters which raised enough money to prepare 12,900 meals.
Our thanks to SkillsUSA for an unforgettable week, and for a decade of powerful partnership and impact!
