NEW YORK, Oct. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/
KN Karen Neuburger, the international loungewear brand, is proud to announce that in 2017 they have made philanthropic donations to 3 organizations that work with families in the New York metro area. On the cutting edge of fabric technology and design, the company's culture has always stressed the importance of supporting their community.
This year, KN Karen Neuburger provided sleepwear, loungewear and exercise clothing for women and their children who are in residence at The Retreat. The Retreat, established in 1987, provides domestic violence and sexual assault services on Eastern Long Island with education programs and supportive services in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. The Retreat's mission is to provide safety, shelter and support for victims of domestic abuse and to break the cycle of family violence.
In honor of National Pajama Day this past April, the company donated women's sleepwear and loungewear to the Coalition for the Homeless. For more than three decades the Coalition for the Homeless has developed and implemented humane, cost-effective strategies to end mass homelessness in New York City. Their programs represent solutions that can dramatically reduce the homeless population and prevent homelessness among those most at risk.
"It was our privilege this year to be able to provide new sleepwear to these worthwhile organizations", says Victoria Vandagriff, President of KN Karen Neuburger. "Having new pajamas is something we celebrate every day here while many women in our community have to go without. We are thrilled to be able to remedy this with our donation."
Lastly, the KN Karen Neuburger team collected school supplies to be donated to the Volunteers of America's Operation Backpack program. One of the most devastating consequences of homelessness is the impact it has on a child's education. Since 2004, Volunteers of America-Greater New York has been collecting and distributing new backpacks filled with grade-specific school supplies to children living in homeless and domestic violence shelters throughout New York City. A filled backpack relieves parents of a financial burden and provides a sense of normalcy to the otherwise chaotic lives of these children, helping them to look and feel more like their classmates. Most importantly, their new backpacks allow them to start the school year feeling prepared and confident, with the knowledge that their education is important and that someone believes in them.
Vandagriff says, "Giving back to the community we live and work in is something that KN Karen Neuburger prides itself on. I am very pleased that with our support of these organizations we are able to help those in need."
