Mud Bay Donates 10% of Sales During Opening Weekend to Education Non-Profit
Community | October 8, 2020
Mud Bay is celebrating the opening of our new Roosevelt neighborhood store in Seattle by donating 10-percent of that store’s sales to Northwest Education Access this weekend. Come shop at the Roosevelt store (or use curbside pick up from that store) from October 10 through the 11th to have 10-percent of your purchase go to this organization’s work supporting local young people.
Mud Bay chose to support NWEA because this organization provides mentorship, technical assistance and personal attention to low-income young people in King, Pierce and Snohomish county who want to pursue post-secondary education. The pandemic has brought new challenges to NWEA students, so this organization can use community support more than ever.
“Due to COVID-19, NWEA students had their lives interrupted in drastic ways, including the immediate loss of work and income. Loss of income resulted in multiple hardships, including difficulties paying for rent, bills, groceries, childcare, tuition, textbooks, and so many other aspects of life,” said NWEA Community Engagement Director Neena Viel.
Our donation of 10-percent of all sales for our Roosevelt store’s opening weekend will help the NWEA continue its essential outreach and support for 16 to 24-year-olds who don’t work or attend school before entering the program.
“Mud Bay donations will be used to help us provide intensive, comprehensive support to students throughout this especially challenging time,” said Viel. “We remain committed to providing individualized support to help low-income students build their own path to and through higher education.”
Opening a new store is an exciting process, and the Roosevelt store staff are eager to show off the results of everyone’s hard work. To celebrate the opening with people who can’t visit during our opening weekend, we’ll be hosting an online giveaway for dog and cat owners. Winners of this giveaway can come to our new store to pick up their prize.
Our online giveaway consists of four baskets of pet supplies, each valued at more than $200! The first giveaway, consisting of one cat and one dog basket, will be held from October 10th through October 23rd. The second giveaway begins on October 24th and ends on November 6th. We’ll announce the lucky winners on October 24th and November 7th. Want to enter for a chance to win? Visit our Roosevelt store giveaway entry form.
