ING Promotes Internal Shoe Drive for Soles4Souls

ING, the global company that provides financial services in more than 50 countries, is promoting internal shoe drives to benefit Soles4Souls. In coordinating with their recent "Orange goes Green" program, ING is offering another alternative for employees to help the environment. Donating 'gentle worn' shoes helps a person in need while keeping shoes out of our nation's landfills.

The "Orange goes Green" program also includes promoting national campaigns such as Earth Day, America Recycles, and Energy Star’s "Change-a-Light" day, while encouraging workers to use office-based recycling centers and participate in alternative transportation programs.

There are already seven ING sites on board with the Soles4Souls shoe program including centers in Atlanta, Des Moines, Minneapolis, Minot, Scottsdale, West Chestor and Windsor.

There is still time for every site to join the cause. Sponsoring sites will receive a large Soles4Souls bin placed in their lobby or other prominent location. ING employees can ask a member of your local Orange Goes Green or ING Community Partners committees for more information.
