KatyBug Faye Boutique and Trunk Show Donates Jeans to Women’s Shelter
300 pairs of jeans empower women and children at My Sister’s Place this back-to-school season
Chandler, Ariz. (August 6, 2012) – KatyBug Faye Boutique and Trunk Show, a successful women’s boutique, collected and donated 300 pairs of denim jeans for women and children impacted by domestic violence.
Knowing that many families struggle to purchase back-to-school clothing, KatyBug Faye Owner Lisa Looney decided to help women and children who need it the most — the residents at My Sister’s Place. My Sister’s Place is one of only the only domestic violence shelters in the East Valley, providing a private and comforting environment for safety and recovery.
The boutique organized a denim drive during July; customers who donated a pair of gently used jeans were given a 50 percent discount on a new brand-name pair from KatyBug Faye. More than 300 enthusiastic customers jumped at the chance to participate and the boutique was able to deliver 300 pairs of jeans in a variety of brands and sizes to My Sister’s Place.
“These families’ lives have been turned upside down by domestic violence,” Looney said. “At KatyBug Faye, we believe strongly in empowering women. A stylish pair of jeans can create confidence and build self esteem, and we hope these jeans will help give additional strength to these brave women and teens.”
KatyBug Faye has grown into a local shopping gem since opening in November 2010, offering fashionable and affordable clothing and accessories to women of all ages. Looney launched the business from her home nearly two years ago, originally planning to sell her limited collection of fashion finds exclusively at private parties. But as private party bookings quickly increased from once a quarter to several each week, Looney saw the potential to bring something to the community that was missing — a boutique filled with one-of-a-kind, on-trend styles that offered an alternative to larger retail outlets and expensive boutiques.
KatyBug Faye is located at 4970 S. Gilbert Road, Chandler. For more information, visit www.katybugfaye.com or call (480) 802-9200.
