Timberland's commitment to justice and children is realized through our relationship with Share Our Strength, one of the nation's leading anti-hunger, anti-poverty organizations. Through creative partnerships with chefs, restaurateurs, writers and corporations, Share Our Strength brings together a diverse network to end hunger and poverty. Book sales, bake sales, taste events and co-branded products engage consumers in Share Our Strength's mission as partners in the fight against hunger.

Timberland and Share Our Strength have been partners since 1996. Together, we've developed creative programs - such as the Timberland® Crib Bootie line - to donate a portion of proceeds to SOS and highlight the issue of childhood hunger. In 2001, SOS founder Bill Shore joined Timberland's Board of Directors. In 2003, Timberland CEO Jeff Swartz joined SOS Board of Directors.
