New Jersey-based non-profit human services agency receives mass donation of footwear.
OKI Data Corporation has announced that its OKI Data Americas sales team has donated more than 140 pairs of shoes to the Center for Family Services (CFS), a New Jersey-based non-profit organisation aiding vulnerable families in southern New Jersey.
The shoes were bought as part of the sales team’s promotional incentive programme in April, in which a percentage of each sale of a single or multi-function device was collected into a “shoe bank” that was tallied at the close of the OEM’s first fiscal quarter.
OKI state that the Center for Family Services was selected due to the “organisation’s comprehensive continuum of care dedicated to changing the odds for children and families through prevention, intervention and education”.
Greg Van Acker, Vice President, US Sales, OKI, commented: “We are pleased to support Center for Family Services and the children and families they serve within our community. The OKI US sales team has already started contributing to another ‘shoe bank’ and we look forward to continuing to make a positive impact on children’s lives.”
President of CFS Richard Stagliano added: “We are very grateful for the generous support and donation from the OKI US sales team, and are excited to present each of the children in the Head Start programme with a new pair of shoes for the upcoming school year […] the OKI US sales team’s donation to the Back to School event helps us to create a positive experience for these children and prepare them for success.”
