Firefly Fabrics understands the importance and necessity of sharing success and investing in the community...so we are in the process of creating our own Not-for-Profit Foundation, Firefly's Friends, to fill a vital role in the special needs community!
Firefly's Friends is a community of both "Givers" and "Receivers." Receivers run programs for skaters, dancers, and other performers with special needs. Givers have the opportunity to make tax-deductible donations of gently worn garments, as well as brand new fabric, stones, and notions; these are then either sent directly to Receivers or turned into beautiful, brand new outfits by Firefly Fabrics for special needs performers and athletes, at no charge to them.
Firefly's Friends was started because our owner spent many years working in the special needs community and directed the Special Olympics program for athletes from South Central Los Angeles, Watts and Compton. She understands the struggles and difficulties involved for coaches and caregivers, and this program hopes to alleviate some of the financial and logistical stress and burden associated with providing special needs athletes and performers with the very best opportunities possible. She also understands and has seen the incredible generosity of the skating and dance community, but so often people don't know how to help in a tangible, appreciated way.
Won't you join us? There is no commitment and no charge to become a member of the Firefly Fabrics community. You will receive a monthly e-newsletter...your contact information is completely separated from Firefly Fabrics, so you won't receive advertisements, junk mail, or spam.
