U-Serve Volunteers Bring the Kicks For Local Students
Bimbo Bakeries USA, Thomas'® and the Philadelphia Union recently partnered with Operation Warm to donate new sneakers to hundreds of students at Chester Community Charter School.
The event was part of Bimbo Bakeries USA’s and the Philadelphia Union’s U-Serve program, an initiative that encourages associates and fans to volunteer with nonprofit organizations in the Greater Delaware Valley. Using the U-Serve website, fans can sign up to volunteer in exchange for Union-branded gear and exclusive Union experiences.
The students at Chester Community Charter School not only walked away with new shoes but also had the chance to meet Philadelphia Union players, Alejandro Bedoya and Mikeal Uhre as well as Union Mascot, Phang.
“The Thomas’® brand team has a longstanding relationship with Operation Warm, donating thousands of new coats and shoes to students across the country each year,” said Mike Jenson, Senior Brand Manager, Thomas’. “We were proud to bring this meaningful event to the Union’s hometown of Chester, PA and continue to build off the excitement of the release of the new Thomas’ jersey.”
