Thank You For Helping Us Feed 21,000 Children in NYC!
At Piccolina, our mission to empower goes beyond clothing. That's why we partner with non-profit organizations working on the ground to empower and educate children in at-risk communities across the globe. Today, we are celebrating a particularly special partnership with our friends at City Harvest, New York City's largest food rescue organization who are helping to feed children in families in need right here in New York.
When the pandemic first hit (just a few months after launching Piccolina), we considered what our role might be. How could we help? What could we do? We quickly went to work and debuted a line of Face Masks for kids and adults. But with a desire to do more than simply feel a need, we committed to donating 20% of the collection's proceeds to City Harvest to help them deliver food to children and families who had been hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are beyond thrilled to share that thanks to our compassionate community of customers, we were able to raise enough money to help City Harvest feed more than 21,000 children and their families in NYC! We couldn't have done this without you so from everyone at Team Piccolina, we thank you for your ongoing support!
Since launching our Face Mask collection with our best-selling Spring Prints in 2020, we have expanded to include even more themed prints, including the addition of our fan-favorite Trailblazer prints such as RBG, Frida Kahlo, Malala, and more! And we'll continue donating proceeds for every mask sold. Shop masks for the whole family here.
Looking for ways to support in your own community? We encourage you to look for non-profit organizations in your area. You can use the Food Finder tool here to search for local food pantries right in your own neighborhood. They're always looking for donations and it's a fun, easy way to get your little ones involved. Let them pick out a few non-perishables from home, and coordinate a time to drop them off together!
