For the second year in a row, Converse has contributed All-Star sneakers for the FosterClub All-Stars. This year, Converse provided 20 young leaders from FosterClub with a gift card that allowed them to design their own All-Star shoes with custom colors, patterns, and embroidery that reads “FosterClub” through the Converse One website .The gift cards allowed FosterClub All-Stars to purchase several other items from Converse, also.
“Our young leaders were really excited about the gift from Converse,” said Celeste Bodner, Executive Director. “The FosterClub All-Stars were selected through a very competitive application process, and to be rewarded with a gift like this from Converse really helps make the honor of being selected special. And besides, the Converse All-Stars are just cool.”
Thank you, Converse.
