The island of Puerto Rico continues to deal with the effects from Hurricane Maria. NBA Star Damian Lillard and other athletes are helping to spread the word about an initiative to help.
Lillard celebrates Foot Locker’s commitment to committing Acts of Greatness – physical acts of generosity that inspire and uplift others.
At the center of this year’s Week of Greatness is a call to support the needs in Puerto Rico following the impact of Hurricane Maria, the strongest hurricane to hit Puerto Rico since 1932.
In addition to delivering essential aid to help its associates, their families and the communities in need Foot Locker is introducing sneaker donation bins in more than 1,650 of its stores around the globe as a part of its partnership with non-profit, Soles4Souls.
Foot Locker is providing thousands of new pairs from its own supply to support on-going recovery efforts in Puerto Rico and has committed to donating more than $1,000,000 towards humanitarian relief efforts around the globe, including $100,000 to support Soles4Souls. Top athletes, artists and influencers including Damian Lillard, will also commit their own Acts of Greatness by donating their shoes to the cause. As an additional “Act of Greatness,” Lillard will spend time this week talking with teens about respecting each other and themselves in the local Portland area.
