GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Wolverine Worldwide has outfitted students at Grand Rapids Public Schools’ Academy of Design and Construction with customized work clothes.

As part of their school work, the students spend two hours per day working on a Habitat for Humanity home.

Wolverine Worldwide spent more than $8,000 to provide work jackets, boots, gloves, hats and socks for the students.

“We covered them head to toe,” Carrie Hill, a senior footwear designer for Wolverine Worldwide, said. “Something that would make a full ensemble.”

The new gear helps keep the students warm in these cold temps and makes sure the home is ready in time for a family in need.
