Wolverine, Metallica nonprofit partner on boots for a cause

Aug. 12, 2020; Grand Rapids Business Journal

A local footwear brand is partnering with Metallica’s nonprofit to roll out two pairs of limited-edition boots, with all proceeds going to educate skilled trades students.

… Wolverine and AWMH’s partnership will benefit three “exceptional” U.S. community college trade programs — Grand Rapids Community College (GRCC), Lone Star College (Houston) and Wichita State University Tech (Wichita, Kansas). Each school will receive a $100,000 joint grant from Wolverine and Metallica Scholars — a major workforce education initiative that provides direct support to community colleges — as well as Wolverine boots to help students get started in their careers.
