Palm Beach Daily News: How Palm Beachers can shop brands that give back
Palm Beach shops have taken a hit since the coronavirus outbreak, but it hasn’t stopped them from giving back to the community. Stoney Clover Lane, owned by residents Libby and Kendall Glazer, was one of the first shops to close when news of the disease hit Florida. Its shipping distributor in New York shut down a month ago but the brand is still selling its patches and bags online.
Since closing its Palm Beach store March 15, the company has been donating 10 percent of sales to Baby2Baby, an organization providing basic necessities such as diapers and clothing to children living in poverty, but the brand is expanding its relief efforts to restaurants and businesses near its Palm Beach retail location.
But the Glazer sisters are not the only ones giving back. Whether it’s 100 percent of sales or a portion, these businesses also are donating to local cultural groups, food banks and charities in need during the coronavirus pandemic.
Oscar de la Renta
The designer brand will donate 15 percent of sales to the CDC Foundation.
All proceeds from Wolffer Girls Collection, hand-dyed tees and hoodies for children and adults, will be donated to the Bridgehampton Childcare Center.
Bognar & Piccolini
The Royal Poinciana Plaza shop will be donating 1,000 handmade masks per week to Florida institutions.
Alice + Olivia
For every mask sold, Alice + Olivia will donate one to the medical community and beyond. The brand also has donated to No Kid Hungry and 800 Ring Pops to Good Samaritan Medical Center’s nursing team.
Zadig & Voltaire
With each purchase, Zadig & Voltaire will make a donation to American Red Cross’ Pandemic Relief Efforts.
The Grand Tour
A portion of all sales will be donated to the COVID-19 Response Fund at The Community Foundation of Palm Beach and Martin Counties.
