Shoe Sensation Partnering With Big Brothers Big Sisters To Raise Money

Now through Monday, Shoe Sensation will help Big Brothers Big Sisters by accepting donations on their behalf. 
Individuals making a donation of $1 or more during the drive will be rewarded with 10 percent off their purchase of a single item at Shoe Sensation. The money donated will be used to support the charity’s efforts in Warsaw and the surrounding community.  
Shoe Sensation Inc. is partnering with local charities which are focused on helping children in order to raise awareness as well as contribute to fund-raising efforts to advance Big Brothers Big Sisters’ mission.
 “We are excited to have this opportunity to help Big Brothers Big Sisters on their mission in our community,” said Jim Quiggins, vice president of marketing for Shoe Sensation Inc., in a release from the company. “Our hope is to make it effortless for our customers to make a difference in a child’s life through the small gesture of donation in exchange for a discount.  This is a great opportunity for all of us to help some deserving children right here in Warsaw.”
Julie Gagel, director of public relations for Shoe Sensation, has been coordinating the week-long program with Big Brothers Big Sisters.  

“I would like to thank Big Brothers Big Sisters for allowing us to partner with them in this endeavor,” Gagel is quoted as saying. “We trust, with community support, this will be a success and I look forward to being able to expand our partnership with local charities like Big Brothers Big Sisters in the near future.”
