Charles River Apparel's 'Tis the Season for Giving Campaign Results
Charles River Apparel, Sharon, Mass., a manufacturer of innovative active wear, has announced the results of their holiday 'Tis the Season for Giving campaign. Throughout the month of December, the company challenged Facebook users to "Like" the Charles River Apparel fan page. In return, the company promised to donate one piece of apparel for each "Like" to Circle of Hope, a Needham, Massachusetts-based non-profit organization that collects, sorts and distributes new and gently used clothing to both individuals and families living in homeless shelters, as well as those in transition and working towards independency. As a result of the campaign, the company donated over 400 pieces of apparel to Circle of Hope last month.
Employees from Charles River Apparel visited the non-profit to hand deliver the donation and take a tour of their headquarters.
"As a family-owned business, we are passionate about giving back to our community and we were touched by the work that Circle of Hope does to better the lives of those who really need help," said Kate Souza, public relations specialist for Charles River Apparel. "We could not have been happier with the outpouring of support we received, specifically from our customers, through the 'Tis the Season for Giving campaign. It was wonderful to be able to give so many jackets and know each and every one would help keep an individual warm this winter."
Year-round, the Charles River Cares program donates high quality apparel to a variety of charities. Over the past 30 years, tens of thousands of clothing items have been donated both in the Unites States and abroad. Recently, the company announced its official partnership with Circle of Hope and has plans for employees to volunteer their time collecting and sorting for the non-profit this coming spring.
