Volunteering Is Always In Style
DSW employees are improving communities one hour at a time
We’re known for having the best assortment of trendy shoe styles but we also have some of the best employees who continuously give back by donating their time to help non-profit organizations that they care about. With our philanthropic platform, Shoe Lovers Care, we’ve created several programs such as Lend a Hand, Lead the Way and Leave Your Mark. All of these programs help us to give back to the community either through donating time or money to various nonprofits.
Over the past few years, our associates have donated over 10,000 hours of volunteer service which is remarkable. We’re so proud of everyone that has given back to their communities and their willingness to help others has inspired us to give back as well by donating over $1.2 million to more than 200 non-profit organizations.
This year, we’re giving our associates even more reasons to give back by offering one associate that volunteers the most hours in the next three months a $500 DSW gift card. We’re also going to give a $500 DSW gift card to one lucky shoenista who volunteers the most hours this year. If you’re having trouble finding a place to donate your time to, VolunteerMatch has a list of non-profit organizations that you can choose from.
