Nike/Jordan Winter Drive
Our Community Economic Development Manager, Ahmed Muhumed, and AYCO Youth Environmental Workforce Coordinator, Ahlam Osman, planned, coordinated, and collaborated with the Nike and Jordan staff. Josh Heard, Footwear Development Director, collected and delivered nearly 500 pairs of shoes and clothes to our community for the winter drive. At the event, on December 15, 2022, about 300 pairs of shoes and over 100 clothes (Mostly jackets) were handed out to community members by the cultural navigator and the Nike Jordan staff. Cultural navigators partnered with a Nike Jordan staff to hand out shoes and clothes to the students. Many students talked with the Nike Jordan staff and received helpful tips about working at Nike and how to apply to internships and learn beneficial skills. Everyone had a fantastic time, especially the students; they had big smiles on their faces as they received their shoes.
