Two Ten Footwear Foundation, the footwear industry's national charitable foundation, and the National Shoe Retailers Association (NSRA) today announced the formation of a strategic partnership to extend Two Ten’s services and financial assistance to the independent footwear retailers across the United States.

Celebrating its centennial anniversary in 2012, NSRA is the oldest and largest trade association in the footwear industry, providing educational programs and financial services to its members. When asked about the benefits of the partnership, NSRA president Chuck Schuyler stated, "Two Ten is committed to strengthening America's footwear community and partnering with them simply makes good business sense. We are excited for the opportunity to present Two Ten’s benefits and programs to our members.”

"Our strategic partnership with NSRA allows us to better serve independent retailers and provide emergency financial assistance at times of crisis, college scholarships for employees and their children, and other social and career services,” said Neal Newman, president of Two Ten Footwear Foundation.

By aligning their unique offerings through this partnership, Two Ten and NSRA are able to better disseminate critical communications to reach a greater footwear audience, effectively coordinate event schedules and development opportunities, collaborate on community volunteerism activities like #footwearcares, and deepen relationships industry-wide.
