McClure Engineering Co. Participates in City of Urbandale Shoe Drive for Second Year

CLIVE, Iowa, November 7, 2016 – McClure Engineering Co. (MEC) was founded on the principle of building strong communities. Being actively involved in community volunteer programs is one more way we can help further that vision – not only in the communities where we have offices located but also in other cities where we do business.

As part of our community outreach program, MEC participated in the City of Urbandale, Iowa Nike Re-Use a Shoe program.Our Clive office accepted donations of 206 pairs of gently worn and worn out shoes. Shoes in good enough condition were donated to the Urbandale Clothing Closet and Des Moines’ Dress for Success programs. If they were too worn out to be used, they will be disassembled and the materials will be repurposed for use in clothing, playgrounds, and athletic fields/floors.

McClure Engineering Co. also sponsored area schools who participated in the program. Students at various elementary schools in the Urbandale and Waukee School Districts who brought in shoes earned $1.00 per pair for their school. Over 4,750 pairs of shoes were collected – almost 1,000 more than in 2015.
