In early January, my heart was tugging at me to give back to our community. So we came up with a plan that Pink Lola would do profit shares and fundraisers for non profits. We would select a nonprofit and donate 20% of our sales and in return I would give a 20% off coupon to our customers as a thank you for participating. Thus the birth of our 2020 Vision of giving back to our community was birthed! Well you know what happened next! All you know what broke lose and a stay at home order was put into place. To be honest at that point, giving back was not even on my radar! I was just trying to stay in business! Well a few long weeks later and our urge to give back to our community is even stronger!
So our first non profit is Positive Attitude Youth Center. PAYC has been serving our youth and their families for 26 years. PAYC strives to enrich children and young adults to achieve physical, spiritual, and emotional maturity. Pastor Kerry Richmond is the executive director. Pastor Kerry and his staff do a wonderful job loving, teaching and guiding the children to become all God has planned for them. Several years ago, I had the privileged to work with PAYC and see first hand the joys and challenges the youth center faced on a daily basis.
The children grow through physical activities and games. While playing children learn good sportsmanship, sharing and team work But it is not all fun and games at PAYC! The children receive tutoring and support with their homework and are encourage to do well in school.
I hope this gives you a glimpse into Positive Attitude Youth Center and the work they are doing in our community. Our profit share for the PAYC is June 11-14! Pink Lola will donate 20% of sales in store and online during this time! Please contact me at 336-539-0344 with any questions. I would love the opportunity to tell you more! Thank you in advance for your support!
