DTLR, one of the country’s most successful lifestyle retailers with more than 240 stores in 19 states, presented a total of $100,000 to several nonprofit organizations—who helped identify the families in need in each city—in an effort to provide holiday cheer to less fortunate families this season. The funds, which were donated by DTLR and Adidas, were given to 100 families in Atlanta, Chicago, Miami, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. In each city, 20 families received a $1,000 Visa gift card to enjoy a holiday shopping spree.
“Caring for community members in need is a core part of our DNA at DTLR, and we want to ensure we are doing what we can to help those in the areas we serve this holiday season,” states Tremayne Lipscomb, DTLR Director of Community Outreach. “Our goal is to empower community members and show our support for them, especially during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which has caused hardship for so many.”
ATLANTA: DTLR partnered with The Pinky Cole Foundation, a nonprofit that is dedicated to promoting Black economic progress through educational programs, networking events and thought leadership.
CHICAGO: DTLR partnered with Think Outside Da Block, an organization that works to improve the lives of disadvantaged youth and community members by promoting positive youth development strategies.
MIAMI: DTLR donated funds to T.E.E.S., a nonprofit committed to providing youth with safe and positive family environments in which they learn skills that lead them to become self-sufficient and productive community members.
