In August, The Basketry partnered with CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) as a way to give back to our community. CASA specially trains and supervises volunteers that are appointed to speak up for children in foster care. With school starting in August, The Basketry decided to offer Backpacks With a Purpose (BWAP). For every backpack purchased by one of our wonderful Basketry customers, The Basketry donated two backpacks to CASA for children in need, for a total of 36 backpacks !! How awesome is that?? These backpacks could be used for school, after-school sporting events, or even sleep overs ! What a great feeling to help children in need!
Our next give back to the community plan for September, is to donate all the Basketry wrapping tips to the Back the Blue campaign. The Back the Blue is a campaign that is helping to raise money to help our St Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office purchase bullet proof vests for officers!
So come in and shop, or just stop by to say “Hi!”
