The Palm Beach Post: Coronavirus Florida: 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.
“A few weeks ago we thought of places to help while drawing business,” co-founder and co-Chief Executive Officer Kendall Glazer said.
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.
