We believe that in order to be a successful and thoughtful business, we must give back to the communities that we serve. Giving back is not something that we do once a year. We are the founding sponsor of a new program, called “The Krinkle Project”.
Get Social – The Krinkle Project
To distribute loot bags to children who are temporarily living in Women’s Shelters.
Loot bags are distributed 4 times per year to each shelter. The program delivers 200 loot bags per quarter, and by the end of December 2017, will have delivered over 2200 bags and over 8000 brand new books.
- School supplies: backpacks, binders, notebooks, duo-tangs, notepads, pencil cases, pens, pencils, crayons, markers, erasers, sharpeners and glue sticks
- Craft items: paint, glitter, origami paper, construction paper, beads, Styrofoam, jigsaw puzzles, yarn
- Misc items: socks, hair accessories, nightlights, toothbrushes
Families who flee to shelters often arrive empty handed, immediately settling into a new routine. Children have very few, if any, personal belongings and must begin transitioning to a new environment.
“Because of your generosity and donations of books, school supplies and educational learning materials, the children have a better chance of success.But more importantly, the children’s smiles, when they received your donations, told a million unspoken words.Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
