DRMA Gives Back with a Boot Drive

Updated: Dec 13, 2019

Dates: October 1-25

Goal: Collect 200 pairs

The company that donates the most shoes wins homemade cupcakes for their team!

The DRMA Young Professionals Committee has partnered with Clothes That Work to run a boot drive to give back to the Dayton region. Clothes That Work is a local non-profit organization that helps job seekers in our community by outfitting them for interview and their first few weeks on the job. They have a current need for steel-toed boots (or any steel-toed safety footwear) to provide to those seeking jobs in the manufacturing industry.

Your shoes will help others get a foot in the door!

DON'T FORGET to tie the laces and insert your company’s business card into each pair. 

How to Donate:

  • Drop off your footwear at any DRMA event or meet-up

  • Drop them off at the DRMA office between 9:00 - 5:00 p.m. (in the Dayton Convention Center)

  • How to find us: The DRMA office is located inside the Dayton Convention Center (22 E. Fifth St., Dayton). Simply pull up in the loop in front of the building (make sure you pull to the side so that other cars can get past you); enter the single door (far right), and you’ll see our office. Run in, say hi to the DRMA staff, and drop your boots in the bin!
