I’m excited to share a project that I’ve been working on for a few months. I’ve designed a capsule collection to support a local Connecticut non-for profit organization called Hands on Hartford. Hands on Hartford, in partnership with other organizations, strengthen communities in Hartford by providing assistance to people in need through programs that impact lives directly.
Hands On Hartford serves neighbors in need in the areas of food, housing and economic security. By engaging with volunteers, they are able to serve more people in the City of Hartford. By involving people from all walks of life, they are connecting communities through valuable service interactions and volunteer opportunities.
When you buy a piece of jewelry from the HOPE Collection, 20% of the net proceeds go to support Hands on Hartford’s work for supporting the neediest residents in the areas of food, housing, and economic security in Hartford, CT. Their services currently touch the lives over 8,500 people annually and some of their services include MANNA soup kitchen, food pantry, and weekend meal programs for children and seniors; Faces of Homelessness Speakers’ Bureau to raise public awareness about homelessness; supportive housing and housing assistance including security deposit and utility assistance.
Learn more about Hands on Hartford and volunteer opportunities here.
You can shop the pieces of this capsule collection here.
I hope you enjoy wearing these pieces, as much as I enjoyed designing them!
