LCU Brings the Community Together to Donate 238 Pairs of New Shoes to Frank Elementary School

Tempe Arizona, October 2, 2017 – Landings Credit Union, Reebok at Phoenix Premium Outlets, San Tan Ford and Precision Fleet Services came together to help children at Frank Elementary School, by donating 238 pairs of new shoes and over 200 pairs of socks.

Kathleen Esquibel, an Member Service Representative at Landings Credit Union was visiting Frank Elementary when she witnessed a child wearing his dad’s shoes because he had none. After sharing her visit with others at Landings, a group of employees worked to help as many kids as possible. Reebok stepped up and donates $2000 and offered deep discounts. San Tan Ford and Precision Fleet Services also donated bringing the total to $5000.

“I know that if a kid looks good, and they feel good, they are more likely to succeed in school.” Said Ami Johnson the store manager at Reebok. Ami is a former parole officer in the City of Guadalupe, and knows all too well the needs of the kids in the area. He didn’t think twice when he was approached  by the Landings team.

Landings CU is proud that these partners were able to step up in such a big way. Reebok’s slogan “we are better together” depicts this project flawlessly.
