(DE-FI) Gives Back: Paying It Forward
On Saturday July 11, 2015, The Dayton Emerging Fashion Incubator (DE-FI) LLC celebrated its 2 Year Anniversary by giving back to the community with the 2nd Annual (DE-FI) Gives Back.
We were excited to partner with Montgomery County Sheriff's Department and the Montgomery County Sheriff's Police Athletic League (PAL), The Circle of Vision Keepers Re-Entry and Recovery Program, and the Corner Stone Project to #FillTheSquadCar with school supplies, non-perishable food items, toiletries, and gently used school uniforms and other clothing items that were donated to our official non-profit the Circle of Vision Keepers Re-Entry and Recovery Program!
While we filled up the Sheriff's squad car with donations, we will also be put in work in the "Community Peace Garden" donated by Montgomery Country Sheriff Phil Plummer and the Sheriff's PAL.
Various Members of #TeamDEFI were staged at Marathon Gas Stations, Third Perk Coffeehouse & Wine Bar and Weekend Ribs giving back to the community and saying #ThankYou with #RandomActsOfKindness and gift card distributions! Random visitors to those businesses received $25 Gas Cards, free coffee, and free meals.
Last but certainly not least our #GlamSquad at Creative Images gave a full salon experience to participants from the Circle of Vision keepers Re-Entry and Recovery programs Sober Housing to help them get ready to re-enter the workforce!
