On Monday, May 29th, our Customer Service and Shipping offices and
Seattle Factory Showroom will be closed in observation of Memorial Day (Wikipedia: href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memorial_day">Memorial Day).
On this Memorial Day weekend, we would like to thank you, our customers, for helping us to raise a total of $18,480.00 for the Seattle Vet Center through your purchase of the French Label t-shirt. When we participated in the “Stand Down” event held by the Vet Center where tarps, boots, soap, other basic items and a hot lunch, all paid for with money raised by the French Label t-shirts, were given out to Seattle’s homeless veteran
population, and met veterans, some of whom came back from serving in the current Iraq war to find themselves homeless, it showed us first-hand how the money you helped us raise helped homeless veterans and how much more can and needs to be done.
Above: Cheri Page (our former factory manager and Vietnam Vet), Bob Patsfield, and Tom Bihn. Tom is handing Bob the first check.
What else can we do to help our homeless vterans? Tell us what you’ve done, what you think should be done, or how you think people can help in our forums.
In war, there are no unwounded soldiers. —José Narosky
