“Our Customers want to do business with a company that gives back and our employees love working for a company with a purpose. Our new relationship with Hire Heroes has been exciting for everyone,” stated Matthew Hudson, Chief Experience Officer for Work Wear. “With several of our employees having served in the military, we searched for an organization that was working with veterans directly. We will work to raise awareness of the great work Hire Heroes is doing with our Customers in our stores, mobile stores and online, but we wanted to make a difference as well. That is why we in 2018, we will be donating $2 for every Tegopro safety shoe and $1 for every Tegopro insole sold in our stores to Hire Heroes to aid them in their efforts to transition active and former military into civilian work life. Now that’s exciting!” said Matthew.
