Specialty Shoes Donated to Local Nursing Home

Schuylkill Haven, PA- On June 24, 2014, Alpha Distribution Solutions delivered 38 pairs of donated specialty comfort shoes to residents of Seton Manor on behalf of InStride Shoes, a customer of the distribution company.

Located in Orwigsburg, PA, Seton Manor has been providing skilled nursing and rehabilitation services in the area for the past ten years.  Seton Manor is named in honor of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and continues to live out her tradition of caring for each resident with compassion while enhancing their quality of life.  Over 2,000 residents have benefited from their acute care, long term care, and independent living apartments.

Dan Werremeyer, President of InStride Shoes, says, “We know there are many individuals in need of specialty footwear and it was our pleasure to reach out to the local community of our new distribution partner to donate shoes to Seton Manor.”

InStride Shoes creates comfortable, well fitting shoes for walking and leisure activities that provide significant relief for people with foot issues ranging from bunions to more significant diabetes related problems. Developed in conjunction with Podiatrists, Pedorthists and other medical and shoe construction specialists, InStride shoes offer a more precise and comfortable fit with a layered Custom Fit System built into every shoe.

InStride Shoes also manages another line of shoes, Xelero.  Xelero utilizes Swiss technology that provides dynamic and stable forward motion while running or walking.  Xelero shoes reduce forefoot pressure, increase normal walking pace and relieve exercise overuse symptoms including plantar fasciitis, arthritis and hammer toe.

“Alpha Distribution Solutions is honored to help InStride Shoes give back to the community Alpha has been a part of since the 1930’s,” said Alpha’s COO Barry Graff.  “As Alpha continues to grow, we hope to become more involved in local outreach efforts.”

InStride Shoes selected Alpha Distribution Solutions as their new distribution partner in March of this year.  Due to Alpha’s experience and automated distribution processes, Alpha is able to receive their product, package orders, and ship them out to their customers more accurately and efficiently, enabling InStride to save money while improving their service.
