Events: a Wrap-Up of the Recent Mother’s Day Shop at Powell Elementary

SCOUT fans, we wanted to share with you another local opportunity we were able to be a part of, the third annual Mother’s Day Shop at Powell Elementary School in downtown DC. On Friday May 11th over 300 students at the school got jewelry for the mom figures in their life and later gifted it in a SCOUT travel accessories case. This year’s event had the largest participation by students to date, so we’re thrilled to report that all of the boys and girls who came to browse and ‘buy’ gifts in anticipation of Mother’s Day went home with some fab donated jewelry and the additional present of a SCOUT bag.

We’re told that once they had made their purchases,

“they came down off the stage to the packaging tables where, to their surprise, they received the adorable Scout bags generously donated again this year by Deb and Ben Johns at Bungalow”.

The students were offering ideas for how their mom might use her new SCOUT bag,

“like for jewelry or makeup or car keys”.

(more below!)

                This year’s Mother’s Day Shop was another great success and one more reason why the Bungalow team loves helping out where we can in the DC community. The ‘grassroots’ level charities we have worked with and will continue to work with are perfect indicators of the ‘generous’ lifestyle we are always promoting. Our consumers and retailers no doubt have busy and fast-paced lives through which they carry their SCOUT bags and bins, so to own a bag that in turn helps one of our DC neighbors is a purchase of which the SCOUT fans can be very proud. Thanks for your continued support of our brand, which makes our support for these organizations possible!
