WE ARE STILL COLLECTING SHOES THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS
Atlanta – The 411 Brand teamed up with Fathers Incorporated, Sneakerball ATL, The Georgia Hemp Company & The Resource Guild to provide hundreds of New and/or Slightly Used Sneakers and other resources to underserved students throughout Metro Atlanta and their families.
The sneakers were donated by Professional Athletes, Celebrities, Culture Curators as well as our friends at various sneaker companies that looked forward to contributing to the event. Students received sneakers donated from Big Tigger (V103), Ty Young (WNBA, Sneaker Enthusiast), Big K.R.I.T. (Rapper), Nike, Puma, Sneakerball ATL, The Georgia Hemp Company & many more. The event took place at The Gathering Spot.
In order to receive a pair of sneakers, students had to register online. In an effort to remain safe from exposure to Covid 19, upon registration, students were required to have their temperatures checked and required to answer a few questions about their recent health before entering the building for the sneaker giveaway. Once checked in, students were allowed into the socially distanced sneaker giveaway area (5) at a time to select the sneakers of their choice.
