Local, Woman-Owned Company Donating Hundreds of Pairs of Shoes from its Popular line of Stylish and Healthy Grounding Shoes
January 31, 2022 (Evergreen, Colo) - Harmony 783® is joining the effort to support those impacted by the Marshall Fire by launching a nationwide “Giving in Harmony'' program. The Company will donate one pair of shoes for every pair purchased from December 30th, 2021, through the end of February 2022 on its website, Harmony783.com.
Harmony 783 is donating hundreds of pairs of shoes from its grounding footwear line to Sister Carmen Community Center in Lafayette and the Boulder Fire and High Wind Disaster Relief and Donation Resource Center in Broomfield. The first shipments are expected to arrive the first week of February. Sister Carmen Community Center is located at 655 Aspen Ridge Drive in Lafayette and is open 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. daily. The Boulder Fire and High Wind Disaster Relief and Donation Resource Center is located at Flat Iron Crossings Mall in the former Nordstrom store, open daily from 9:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
“When our family home was destroyed by a tornado in 1974, I was so grateful to the donors, volunteers, and disaster relief organizations who provided clothes, shoes, and household goods to help get us back on our feet,” states Harmony 783 Founder and CEO Pam Bard. “We are committed to assisting recovery efforts through our own donation and by spreading the word to our worldwide audience. We hope that receiving the gift of new grounding shoes will help those affected by the fire in some small way.”
In addition to the shoes, Harmony 783’s owner has also donated $5,000 through the Bard Family Foundation to the Community Foundation Boulder County.
“We have seen a tremendous need in our community for absolutely everything. The gift of new shoes from Harmony 783 will help those affected by the Marshall Fire take a healthy step forward in their recovery from this crisis,” states Kristen Bohanan, Director of Development at Sister Carmen.
“The generous support of our private sector partners has proven invaluable at a time like this in aiding us in recovery efforts; the combined efforts of volunteer organizations and private sector groups really are a force multiplier,” states Private Sector Liaison Derek Killebrew, Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. “We are very grateful to have partners like Harmony 783 and so many other private sector partners, who have stepped up at a time of need for our state. These valuable relationships are the core of what makes our work successful in response and recovery efforts.”
About Sister Carmen Community Center
Sister Carmen Community Center, a non-religious 501(c)3 nonprofit, has provided critical assistance to residents of East Boulder County for more than 40 years. Its origins stem from Sister Carmen Ptacnik, a Catholic nun assigned by the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul in 1970 to assess the needs of the people in Lafayette, Colorado. Her name was retained to commemorate her charitable interest in the community. The Center has already helped hundreds of families affected by the fire with food, supplies, clothing, gift cards, temporary housing, and professional trauma-informed Advocacy services to support, guide, and connect families with any resources they need.

About Harmony 783, LLC
Harmony 783 is an innovative grounding footwear company created for health-conscious people who want to optimize their health, comfort, and style by incorporating grounding footwear into their daily activities. Its flagship product line features classic, stylish and athletic grounding shoes for women and men.
Grounding, also known as earthing, is a wellness practice of connecting to the earth’s abundant supply of free electrons, absorbed through the body, to enhance bioelectrical functions. Grounding is easily accomplished while barefoot on a conductive surface like trails, grass, sand, and concrete — or when wearing conductive footwear like Harmony 783s. Initial studies report that with the practice of grounding, natural defenses of the body may be restored; inflammation, pain, and stress reduced; and restorative sleep and wellbeing improved.
