We are very exited to launch the 2013 SPF Love Sunscreen Drive. Sunscreen is a necessary and expensive item, one that most low income families do without. This year we are partnering with The Lower Eastside Girls Club whose members attend camp in Upstate New York in the month of June.
Throughout the entire month of May, Melanoma Awareness Month, donations will be accepted at all Letarte Swimwear locations (Greenwich, Maui and Palm Beach) or may be mailed directly to SPF Love, PO Box 5312, Greenwich, CT 06831.
The Lower Eastside Girls Club, located in Manhattan, provides a place where girls and young women 8-23 can grow, learn, have fun, and develop confidence in themselves and their ability to make a difference in the world. By delivering strong arts, literacy, science, health and leadership programs they provide girls with the vision to plan – and the tools to build – their future.
SPF Love is proud to announce it’s partnership with Family Centers of Greenwich. During the month of May – National Skin Cancer Awareness Month – SPF Love will be collecting new sunscreen for distribution to Greenwich Family Centers and their Head Start program. SPF Love will also be giving a talk on skin protection to Head Start families.
Sunscreen donations can be sent to us at any time (please contact us for address), alternately, you can drop off donations at YWCA of Greenwich or purchase a bottle for donation at Greenwich Pharmacy (addresses below). If you would prefer to donate cash via paypal (specify firstname.lastname@example.org), we can do the shopping for you! Law stipulates that all donations must be PABA free and at least SPF 15.
Thank you sincerely for your continued support.
HUGE thanks to Salt & Paper for their donation to the cause, and of course to Greenwich Pharmacy and YWCA for their partnership.
