Softline Brand Partners: Making a Difference Through Material Donations
At Softline Brand Partners, our commitment to the community extends beyond our business operations. We believe in the power of giving back and have found a unique way to contribute – by donating materials to ArtStart, a nonprofit organization dedicated to nurturing artistic endeavors.
For several years, we have been sharing some of our high-quality discards with ArtStart, supporting their mission to foster creativity and environmental stewardship. This partnership aligns with our values and helps reduce waste, a step towards a more sustainable future.
Inspired by Artstart
“As the proud owner of Softline Brand Partners, I am delighted to continue our enthusiastic contribution to ArtStart. Witnessing our materials find a new home and purpose within the vibrant creative community is truly heartwarming. At Softline, we believe in the power of art to inspire and unite, and we are thrilled to be part of ArtStart’s mission. This donation represents our commitment to fostering creativity and making a positive impact in our local community.”Adam Blitzer, Owner, Softline Brand Partners
ArtStart, renowned for its innovative approach to art education, utilizes these materials in various community programs. From summer camps to creative classes and artist residencies, the donated items find new life in the hands of aspiring artists. However, the excitement is most palpable at ArtStart’s ArtScrap Creative Materials and Ideas Center. Here, local artists and craft enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the arrival of each batch of leather and 100% wool felt scraps. These materials become the cornerstone of countless creative projects, igniting imagination and skill development.
More than a Donation
As quoted by ArtStart, “For several years, Softline has generously donated some of their great discards to our nonprofit organization, ArtStart. ArtStart uses the materials in many of its community programs, such as our camps, classes, and residencies. But it is the customers at ArtStart’s ArtScrap Creative Materials and Ideas Center that eagerly look forward to a fresh batch of leather and 100% wool felt scraps to use in their projects.”
This endeavor is more than just a donation; it’s a testament to Softline’s belief in the transformative power of art. By providing resources to ArtStart, we are not only contributing to environmental sustainability but also supporting a platform where creativity and innovation flourish.
Our partnership with ArtStart is just one of the ways we give back to the community. We are also involved in various other initiatives, supporting local organizations and contributing to the vibrancy of our community.
At Softline Brand Partners, we are proud to be a part of this creative journey and will continue to support ArtStart and similar organizations. We invite our customers and partners to join us in this endeavor, fostering a world where art and sustainability go hand in hand.
