2021 Community Shirt Year in Review (Shirt Fundraiser for Nonprofits)
Community is everything!
As 2021 is coming to an end, we are looking back at some of our favorite things to happen this year. Our Community Shirts are something we're proud of and we're thankful for your support.
This year, we teamed up with six different local non-profits and raised a total of $4,750 to give back and we couldn't have done it without your help!
In case you missed any, here is a recap of our 2021 Community Shirts.
Inspire Hope for St. Paul's Community Center - 170 shirts sold
We kicked off the new year with our Inspire Hope Community Shirt. In January, homeless shelters were facing extreme challenges between the cold weather and the pandemic. Proceeds from this shirt sale went toward helping St. Paul's Community Center provide life-altering advocacy, socialization, housing, and so much more to our community members who needed it most.
Nourish Your Community for Seagate Food Bank - 94 shirts sold
Next, we partnered with Seagate Food Bank to create this Nourish Your Community t-shirt. Seagate Food Bank is the only independent food bank in Ohio. The money raised through this Community Shirt went toward providing the sustenance necessary for growth and health for people in our local community.
You're Not Alone for NAMI Greater Toledo - 148 shirts sold
For the month of May, which is Mental Health Awareness Month, we teamed up with NAMI Greater Toledo. Mental health affects everyone.
