Between the mimosas and bellinis, snacks and raffle baskets, and getting to meet so many new faces, it was impossible to have a bad time at our launch event on March 28th! Thank you so much to everyone who came, volunteered and donated during that time. We are especially thankful to Fox & Finch Studio in Fountain Hill, PA for hosting our event and letting us use their amazing space, as well as all of the local businesses that helped provide raffle baskets and donated snacks. We love you!
We have two events coming up this month where our girls who need clothing and toiletries can have the shopping experience we are so excited to be giving them. The first event is at Creative Tile on April 25th from 11-3pm, and the second is at Thomas Jefferson Elementary on April 29th from 3:30-4:45pm. As always, this info can be found on our website!
We love to see the community coming together to support us and what better way to show off how much you love Olive & Grace than with our merch! We have awesome merchandise on our website, and we're always taking suggestions on what to put out next. ALL proceeds from merchandise go right back to our outreach efforts. Keep an eye out on our socials for the next merchandise poll and maybe your pick will be the next feature!
As a non-profit ran by a handful of recent college graduates and students, we know financial donations and purchasing merchandise can still be a big thing for the bank account. We are always accepting donations for new and lightly used, on trend girls clothing, shoes and accessories but this month we are focusing on fulfilling our need for toiletries! Shampoo, Conditioner, Tampons/Pads, Lotion, Hair Care stuff, etc. Please, think of us next time you're cleaning and organizing the bathroom cabinets. We'd love to help you take care of the collection of dusty and barely used bottles and boxes of those things you might have.
This month we are highlighting two of our community partners! You can drop off donations at Designer Cosigner and Elle's Contemporary Closet, both located on Main Street Bethlehem. Both of these female run small businesses have gone above and beyond for us so make sure you head over and check out their amazing shops!
Volunteer With Us!
With these two events right around the corner and more in the works, we need volunteers to help us keep the wheel's turning when things start off. Besides helping with set up and clean up tasks, we need volunteers to work as store associates, putting "purchases" in take-home bags, talking with shoppers and just being flexible with what comes up as things happen.
Email us at OliveGBoutique@gmail.com to get involved and be sure to put Volunteer in the subject line or fill out the form on our website under "Volunteer".
Spotlight Moment: The OG BFF
For $5 you can give a young girl an OG BFF, which is a care package for their first period. This includes pads, tampons, wipes, chocolate, and an informational pamphlet all in a discreet bag. There is a link in our merchandise section of our website to buy a bag for a girl, and so far we've donated nearly 100 bags to several schools!
