Charles River Apparel Launches a New Philanthropic Initiative for 2019: Clothing for a Cause
Charles River Apparel, Sharon, Mass., launched Charles River Cares, its charitable giving program, in 2010 with the mission of expanding Charles River Apparel’s philanthropic impact in the community. This year, in addition to its core programs, and building off of last year’s Colors for a Cause, Charles River has launched Clothing for a Cause.
Charles River’s Clothing for a Cause is a new initiative that aligns three customer favorites with three important causes. Ten percent of the total sales from each of these styles, from May 1 through Dec. 31, will be donated to specific causes:
- The Women’s Chatham Anorak Solid (5809) will support First Descents. First Descents provides life-changing outdoor adventures for young adults (ages 18-39) impacted by cancer.
- Both the Youth Performer Jacket (8921) and Children’s Performer Jacket (8921) will support Camp for All Kids. Camp for All Kids promotes and facilitates racial diversity by sending kids from under-served communities to overnight summer camp.
- The Doggie Rain Jacket (1099) will support the Pets & People Foundation. Founded in 1985, the Pets & People Foundation offers pet-assisted therapy visits to those in need.
Charles River’s mission is to create a community and environment that is passionate about giving back and as a family-owned business, the company is grateful to be able to give back and help people in need.
