Back in August we had a deal going on where if you bought any pair of skate sneakers from us, whether off the sale stacks or full price, Long's would donate a pair to a local shelter here in Maine. So yeah, I'm a little late in getting this post up, but it's been a busy summer & fall with events and changes around the shop. More on that in a later post, but the gist of it is that you'll be seeing a lot more of Tom around the shop!
I digress, we were talking shoes. So you, our kick ass customers & skate community helped us to donate well over 100 pair of sneakers to an organization in Augusta that will then distribute shoes to those in need.
Some of the kids & families that will receive shoes will get them through schools, shelters, churches. Any type of shelter, any type of religious denomination (or none!). For some these will be the first pair of new shoes they have ever had on their feet. We couldn't have done it without all of you who chose to buy your shoes from us, a local shop that will give back locally. So thank you.
