Charles River Apparel Announces Additional Building Location
Charles River Apparel has secured a long-term lease for additional space in Sharon, Mass., to support its business growth. The new space is strategically located next to its corporate headquarters, and will provide additional warehouse, office and showroom space, allowing for a Charles River Campus setting.
The company also plans to use the new space to support “Charles River Cares,” its philanthropic division, through charitable fundraising pop-up events. The first pop-up event will be launched on Giving Tuesday, Dec. 3, when the company will officially open its doors to help support Christmas in the City, a key charitable partner. More details will be announced prior to the event.
Christmas in the City is a nonprofit organization run by volunteers that strives to lessen the impact of homelessness on families and children living in shelters. With the help of thousands of volunteers, the charity hosts an annual Christmas party for thousands of homeless children at the Boston Convention Center, where children and families receive gifts and participate in a variety of activities. Charles River has been a sponsor of the event for the past several years through employee volunteerism, apparel donations and other financial support.
“We are excited to add this new space to help support our current and future growth," said Charles River CEO Barry Lipsett. "This will give us the flexibility to further expand our distribution center and office needs, as well as support our charitable efforts under Charles River Cares.”
