In August, New Era of Style partnered with Dare 2 Be D.E.A.F (an educational non-profit in Lake City, South Carolina) and OurHouse (a shelter to families experiencing homelessness in Atlanta, Georgia) to host a Book Bag Drive. The COVID crisis along with increasing unemployment numbers posed problems for families needing to provide back to school supplies for their children.
This year has been overwhelming for a number of reasons. People dealt with a lot in a short amount of time. As much as we wanted to change the world, we knew we had to start were we could and work from there. In that spirit, New Era of Style, LLC decided to do it's First Book bag Drive.
The originally goal was to raise $300.00 which would allow us to purchase 20 to 25 book bags
and a few supplies. With the help of grateful donors, we raised a total of $555.00 This allowed us to purchase 46 books bags, paper, pencils, pens, pencil sharpeners, folders, notebooks and color pencils.
New Era of Style takes pride in pouring into our customers and the community. Throughout the year we find various ways to give back to the community as well as help others in accomplishing their goals. We do this by partnering with other small businesses, organizations, and non-profits to provide resources to those in need. Please be sure to check out a fe pictures from the Drive. We are grateful to all those who participated.
