SHEBOYGAN – Six Turtles Boutique, a size-inclusive boutique in downtown Sheboygan, will hold a food drive in conjunction with and benefiting the Sheboygan County Food Bank March 28-April 1.
For every item taken in, Six Turtles will give customers $2 in store credit to use that day, with no limit on the number of items a customer can donate.
“Our favorite part of owning Six Turtles Boutique is the opportunity it gives us to help give back to our community,” owner Lauren Ries said in a news release. “The Food Bank is working tirelessly to make sure that Sheboygan County has enough food to support the community’s needs. We’re excited to be able to give our customers a great opportunity to help make a difference while also shopping locally.”
Last year, the Sheboygan County Food Bank donated more than 1.2 million pounds of food, helping more than 3,200 families.
“This year, we are anticipating an even greater need in Sheboygan County as additional COVID relief ends,” said Food Bank Director Patrick Boyle in the release. “Every donation we receive goes to help the nearly 11,000 people in Sheboygan County who are hungry on any given day.”
The Food Bank is most in need of feminine supply items, personal hygiene products, healthy cereals and peanut butter. Six Turtles will accept these items and any other food donations people would like to give, the news release said.
Six Turtles Boutique is at 833 Pennsylvania Ave. and is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays.
