Philanthropic Partners

More than just a gift store…

Community is such a big part of what makes a small business successful, and we love to help give back to the community because of this! Over the years we have held many events, donations, and drives supporting various local philanthropic organizations. We want to share a bit more about how we give back and about the organizations to spread awareness of these assets to our community!


First United Presbyterian Food Bank

We hosted food drives in conjunction with our annual customer holiday parties in November 2019 & 2020.
Approximately 200 pounds of food were donated each year!

Diane Peppler Resource Center

For several years now, we’ve hosted an Annual Brighton Handbag Trade-In where all handbags brought in were donated to women at Diane Peppler Resource Center.
A Food and Product Drive for women, babies & children was held in conjunction with our 2019 Mother’s Day Event. The community yielded fantastic results, filling the back of an SUV with diapers, toiletries, essential items and gifts for moms that we donated to the DPRC.

Chippewa County Community Foundation “Community Cares Program”

We ran a 3 day matching campaign, donating a $15 gift certificate to the program for every $15 gift certificate purchased from us. We donated 51 gift certificates! We also had 4 employees participate in the event.
