In 2020, thanks to our customers old and new, we were able to do a lot of paying it forward. Now that we’ve kicked off 2021, you best believe that ball is still rolling! This month, we’re setting aside 1% of our web sales to give to New Avenues for Youth.
Being able to give back locally is important to us. New Avenues for Youth is a Portland-based nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention and intervention of youth homelessness. They’ve been hard at work for over 30 years, and their programs have served nearly 30,000 young people as they work to overcome barriers, pursue their goals, and realize their potential. From supporting basic needs like meals and counseling to providing opportunities for education, job training, employment, and housing, they meet youth where they are—and help them get where they want to go.
If you’d like to help us support New Avenues for Youth, it’s as easy as making a GladRags purchase of any size! As always, we’re overflowing (hey, the puns don’t stop in 2021!) with gratitude for any and all contributions. Happy New Year!
