Saving Grace and Single Parent Scholarship Fund Donations

Each quarter we select local charities and non-profits to benefit our donation drive. For the first half of Q3, we selected Saving Grace and the Single Parent Scholarship Fund. OC collected school supplies up until the week before school began.Unknown-3

Bass Pro Shop Cap Recreation

One of our Bass Pro Shops buyers, Angie, reached out to us with a special request. Angie had been contacted by a customer whose brother, David, suffers from a brain injury and lives in a nursing home. He has a Bass Pro hat that he adores, but the customer was concerned that if it was misplaced or stolen it would cause him a great deal of distress. Unfortunately, the cap couldn’t be found in stores, so Angie asked if we could recreate something similar for him. 

We don’t always get follow ups on special requests like this, but we were overjoyed to hear back from David’s sister. We sent him a few styles as close to his beloved hat as possible and cried when he opened the package.IMG_9229
