Giving Back

Philanthropy is ingrained in us. As a small business, we feel a deep responsibility to give back to the very community that supports us. We are wholeheartedly committed to supporting the many charities and organizations that are doing great things for our city.

Without the community, there is no us. 

This is all possible because of you.

With the purchase of items that have a charitable component, you are not only supporting us, but helping us support our community at the same time.

That's pretty powerful.
