The Bridges at 57th Street is dedicating the month of March to the Children’s Home Society. Each “wishing week” throughout the month, participating shops at The Bridges will collect a different category of newly purchased items, and those donations are worth 10% off a single purchase from that location. Wishing weeks include:
Week 1: School and learning materials
Week 2: Clothing and accessories
Week 3: Playtime and recreation
Week 4: Arts and crafts
The idea behind “Wishing Weeks” came after a monthly Bridges at 57th Street marketing meeting where various shop owners expressed interest in supporting a single local organization.
“Coming together to support the Children’s Home Society just explains a lot about the local owners who are part of The Bridges,” says Mike Van Buskirk, President of Operations for Van Buskirk Companies. “They want to give back to the community and they see the potential bigger impact they can make by doing it together.”
Participating locations include:
Eddy Joy Baby Boutique
Forget me Not
J. Ella Boutique
Shop Dog Boutique
Vanessen’s Hair Design
You've Been Framed
If you would like to make a donation, the Children’s Home Society appreciates new items which can be dropped off at any of the above locations during business hours. For more information about the Children’s Home Society, visit their website at chssd.org.
