‘Good Apple’ Apparel Available through the holidays
Local apple orchard Beak & Skiff, and wellness educator K.K. Discovers, have just teamed up as a part of the ‘ProJect LoVe’ movement to fuse their logos for their new apparel line, ‘Good Apple”.
For a limited time, customers will have the opportunity to purchase t-shirts and long-sleeved shirts available in men’s and women’s sizes S – XXL, with 100% of the proceeds going to three distinct and impactful programs established by another local organization, PEACE, Inc. The 3 programs to benefit from purchases include: ‘Head Start’, ‘Family Resource Centers’, and ‘Big Brother Big Sister’.
‘Head Start’ is a program dedicated to helping children, ages 3-5 years-old, achieve their full potential by providing early childhood development, health, family services. ‘Family Resource Centers’ provide emergency assistance, advocacy, employment support, youth activities, and family development for low-income individuals in neighborhoods all throughout Onondaga County. And ‘Big Brother Big Sister’ serves to improve the lives of school-aged children through a variety of mentoring programs including school-based, workplace, and one-to-one mentoring.
Through the ‘Good Apple’ campaign, all of us can show how a simple act can truly make a positive impact on the lives of others. We selected high-quality apparel so that those who wear it feel good (inside and out) knowing their purchase is going right back into the community we love!” To show your support you can venture down to Beak & Skiff’s Apple Orchards store or online shop (https://shop.beakandskiff.com/collections/good-apple-apparel) to grab your own ‘Good Apple’ clothing. In doing so, you are directly giving back to your community. It’s simple and powerful.
