Monday night marked our first event of the 2012 holiday season. We were thrilled to have Lourdes Academy Elementary families come in and shop for a purpose. A purpose that included a special discount for their teachers and we also gave back a portion of the proceeds to the school’s Parent and Teacher Association.
We welcomed the principal and parents were encouraged to bring their children. We had several crafts set up, that included a fun design project. Kids were encouraged to create their own design for a one-of-a kind skirt or t-shirt. I think you can tell by the pictures that they enjoyed this project.
Little t-shirt designers.

We want to thank all of the families and staff that came out for this event. We appreciate the business and enjoy giving back to our community.
Recently, we partnered with the Oakwood Elementary School community on a Holiday sweater drive. Green 3 is purchasing all of the sweaters Oakwood collected, with 100% of the proceeds going directly back to the Oakwood PTO. As you most likely know, Green 3 will take those sweaters and turn them into scarves, hand warmers and even skirts. What you may not know is that Oakwood is the environmental education charter school in our city, making their school a perfect fit for this type of initiative.
After the sweater drive wraps up we are inviting the Oakwood families to our company store for a special event. We want to show them how are sweaters are made and what our company is about. We love our community and are always looking for ways to connect our mission with others. If you or someone you know would be interested in a similar event please contact Carla@green3apparel.com.
