Why Do We Donate NEW Shirts?

By October 2, 2017 No Comments

Do you remember your first high quality shirt? The first time you splurged to get yourself something a little nicer than usual? I sure do. It was for a new job. I remember the way the fabric felt, and the way it made me feel. I felt confident and able, and like I looked the part. Like I was prepared for the job. Welcomed, in a sense.

This is what a new set of clothes has the potential to do, and this is exactly what the Refutee program is all about.

Refugees coming in don’t have much. They’ve been passed around temporary refugee camps for weeks, months, sometimes even years, and what few belongings they have are usually worn out or hand-me-downs. It’s hard to get a job when you don’t have the money of experience to look the part.

We want to make our refugee friends feel welcome, prepared, and important. We want them to succeed in every endeavor. Here at The Printory, our goal is to send 100 new button-downs and polo shirts to our local refugee community every month.

We have a unique line of Refutees for sale. For each one you buy, we buy a new high-quality professional shirt towards our goal.

You can buy the refutees individually, but the better option is to sign up for our Refutee of the Month program. For $25 a month, you will get a new Refutee tee-shirt shipped right to your house every month. A fresh, new design, every time. And while you are enjoying your new garment, a refugee is enjoying theirs.
