Our passion for aspiring to help programs in the community allows us to extend our services even further. Portions of our proceeds are invested back into the foundation of the community. This strategy of Impact Investing enables us to help strengthen the foundation of the community while reaching a greater number of people. We strive to fix the root cause of problems and not provide a temporary fix.
And as “freedom fighters” of our community we wanted to create a brand that not only strives to enhance the physical appearance but also allows us to recycle the dollars earned back into the foundation of our community. For example, youth backpack drives, financial literacy programs, potential scholarships, homelessness resolution assistance programs, and community redevelopment programs (buy back the block). We are looking towards building a strong relationship with our community with our products as well as creating, funding, or partnering on projects that align with our strategic initiatives.
