SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Dec. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Starting today on Giving Tuesday, Vionic shoes, one of the Caleres brands, kicks off a series of charitable initiatives on behalf of Dress for Success, helping give women returning to the workforce a step up.
On December 1, Vionic will donate one percent of gross sales from vionicshoes.com to benefit the national chapter of Dress for Success, assisting women across the U.S. This will be followed by additional initiatives throughout the 2020 holiday season benefitting Dress for Success’ San Francisco chapter. Dress for Success is a global non-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence, providing a network of support, professional attire, and personal development tools to help them thrive in work and in life.
“Dress for Success is authentic to Vionic’s ongoing commitment to getting diverse communities of women ‘up on their feet.. With true support, anything is possible. When we feel and look great, wellness happens and empowerment follows. This purpose is what both of our organizations stand for and the partnership is a perfect fit,” said Angela Caltagirone, SVP, Global Digital and Brand.
In addition to Giving Tuesday, Vionic Cares is donating 100 pairs of shoes to Dress for Success San Francisco’s Professional Women’s Group and is again a sponsor of its annual Holiday Soirée, a festive shop, sip, and support mixer that will be held virtually this year. In January Vionic will support Stretch for Success, a women’s yoga and active lifestyle event celebrating fitness, family, and financial independence.
Vionic is committed to assisting women and men live their best and healthiest lives from the ground up—focusing on support, comfort, wellness, and inspiring styles.
