Holiday Charity Project

GBNY HOLIDAY CHARITY PROJECT

Giving Back to society is what GB’S stands for and this holiday season we made sure to do just that. For the entire month of December we collected monetary donations for our Holiday Charity Project, a charity event that focused on giving back to those in need from the community that has given us so much, Jamaica Queens.
New York winter’s can really take a toll on you so we put together special GBNY care packages to hand out to local shelters. Each bag consisted of one blanket, a pair of gloves, a pair of socks, chapstick, a pack of tissues, a toothbrush, toothpaste, and a snapback hat that we personally donated from our store. We are fortunate to have such amazing customers, both local and around the world, who helped by leaving donations in store and online. We matched the amount of donations we raised in our four store locations and online and met our goal. From there we were able to purchase all of the items we needed. It was heartwarming to see how many people were willing to help out, we could not have done it without them.
We started 2019 out right. On January 3rd we finally got to put all of our plans into action. We brought over 250 bags to our GB’S Sneaker store in the Jamaica Colosseum mall to give out. Waka Flocka stopped by the store to show his support as we hit the streets and set out to 3 local shelters to give back. Even though it was under 40 degrees and windy that night, we stayed outside until every last bag was gone. It was a great feeling to see the smiles on everyone’s faces as they got their bags and snapbacks. It was the perfect way to start out the new year.
This is just the beginning at GBNY. If you would like to get involved in any of our future charity events keep a close eye on our Instagram page. We have a lot of plans for the new year so you won’t want to miss out. If you are not local to the NY metropolitan area, you can still get involved by giving back to your local community and paying it forward. Remember, it doesn’t take much to give back.
