Women's Night Out! Thursday, April 19th
Ladies it is time for you to take a night off! Come enjoy some wine, beer and shopping all while doing your part to help out The Red Basket Project of Jackson County. Thursday, April 19th join us and Tycoga Vineyard & Wineryfor a little wine and beer education night! Tycoga will be pouring some delicious samples of their wines and will be sharing some of brews. AlsoBellevue Mercantile Co. will be on site for you to shop and support local artisans! And to make this event even better Bellevue Mercantile Co. will be donating 20% of profits that night to the Red Basket, along with selling Mercantile canvas bags where 100% of the proceeds will go to the Red Basket! How awesome is that! The only thing we ask is for you to bring a donation for The Red Basket. They are currently looking for pads, pantyliners and regular tampons.
Do you know that Jackson County, IA has 15.6% of households below poverty level and the 4 school districts within the county have 41% of their students utilizing the free/reduced lunch program. Providing feminine hygiene products to this population is a matter of human respect and dignity and is a type of a donation typically overlooked. Girls are missing school because of the lack of these types of products, so lets help out. What is better than women helping women!
