Whayne Supply Donates $500 to ECTC SkillsUSA
ECTC’s SkillsUSA student organization was excited to receive a $500 donation from Whayne Supply Company, a reward for being one of the three schools with the most shoes collected for WaterStep. Whayne Supply Company partnered with KY SkillsUSA to assist in their annual community service project to support WaterStep. ECTC collected more than 300 pairs of shoes.
WaterStep is a Louisville based nonprofit organization with global impact that provides safe drinking water production systems to people around the world (https://waterstep.org/ ). WaterStep funds a portion of their safe drinking water systems by collecting new and gently used shoes. These shoes are then sold to an exporter that resells the shoes in Third World countries.
Whayne Supply Company hosted collection centers at store locations throughout the state and free transportation of the collected shoes to Louisville.
