Louisville Water and Louisville MSD employees donated footwear during the recent shoe drive for WaterStep. The donation, which was more than 900 pounds of shoes, was the result of a friendly competition between the two companies to see who could collect the most footwear.
Although MSD won the competition, the real winners of the shoe drive are the people worldwide who will benefit from drinking water projects funded by the donated shoes.
Several employees from both Louisville Water and MSD delivered the donations to WaterStep and learned about a range of projects, including well repair, bleach-making technology, sanitation education, and disaster relief. Visit WaterStep for more information on company and shoe donations.
