Charles River Apparel Launches Clothing for a Cause


SHARON, Mass.—Charles River Apparel launches its second annual Clothing for a Cause campaign. This year's program focuses on three specific causes, providing "comfort, support, and joy to youth and families."

"Charles River's mission is to create a culture that is passionate about giving back," says Deb Lipsett, founder of Charles River Cares. "As a family-owned business, we are grateful to be able to give back to such important causes in our community."

According to the company, 10% of the total sales of each giveback style will be used to support the mission of the following three charities:

  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Massachusetts, helping children reach their potential through one-on-one mentoring relationships
  • Christmas in the City, bringing comfort and joy to children and families in need by addressing homelessness
  • Camp Kesem, helping children impacted by parental cancer through peer support

The company plans to host pop-up stores throughout the year, one for each cause, to raise awareness and support for the company's various Charles River Cares programs.
