Two Charitable Events Bring Connecticut Community Together
It's wonderful when companies donate a portion of their profits to charities and other non-profits. It's extra wonderful when a business owner decides to donate a full 20% of their profits!
That's what Susan Hanover of Susan Hanover Designs in Greenwich, Connecticut did in February, during a special event dedicated to an organization called the Undies Project. And it's what she just did again in March! The more recent special event was all about raising money for Clothes to Kids of Fairfield County.
"To be able to make even a little bit of difference in people lives is what moves me as a designer and as a small business owner," Susan shared.
Clothes to Kids is incredibly deserving of such support.
"We stand apart from other non profits," says director Alexandra Briggs Kling, "because every eligible child is given the opportunity to 'shop' for their clothes in our 'store.'" (Of course, all the clothes are free for the kids.)
The event at Susan Hanover Designs sounds like a perfect union of two community organizations coming together to celebrate giving back and making a difference in community members' lives. We hope to hear more from these two soon!
