Cleveland, Ohio (7/31/2017) –YWCA USA along with YWCA Greater Cleveland have been selected as the Charity of Choice by Treasure&Bond, the Nordstrom’s give-back brand that supports nonprofit organizations that empower youth.
YWCA USA, YWCA Greater Cleveland and 35 other local associations across the country will receive 2.5% of net sales earned between February 1, 2017 through January 31, 2018. The contribution from Treasure&Bond sales will support the efforts of YWCA USA’s TechGYRLS initiative, which works to raise interest, confidence, and abilities in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) among girls aged nine to twelve. Annually, 260,000 girls, children, youth and teens are building their futures at local YWCAs through programs including girls’ empowerment, TechGYRLS and other STEM/STEAM programs.
“Treasure&Bond has been a great way for us to give back to nonprofits in the communities we support and the brand’s purpose, as well as its laid-back, Americana aesthetic has really resonated with our customers,” said Jennifer Jackson Brown, president of Nordstrom Product Group. “Thanks to our customers, Nordstrom has been able to bring Treasure&Bond into more departments throughout the store, which enables us to give even more to organizations that are doing such important work to support young people.”
“We’ve got a lot of exciting things planned for 2017 that we believe will help us better connect with our customers and further increase the charitable impact of Treasure&Bond,” continued Jackson Brown.
Currently found in Women’s, Men’s and Girls’ apparel, Women’s and Girls’ shoes, Soft Accessories, Jewelry and Hosiery departments, in 2017 Treasure&Bond will be expanding to include Boys’ apparel later this year. The spring collection will continue to focus on a classic, all-American aesthetic, but with a reworked, lived-in twist. Customers can expect to find lots of easy-to-wear pieces that can be layered for an effortless, casual look – soft tees, worn-in button-downs, cozy sweaters and must-have denim favorites.
YWCA Greater Cleveland was established in 1868. It is the seventh oldest YWCA in the country and one of the oldest continuously operating nonprofits in Cleveland.
YWCA is committed to the empowerment of women, but our organization is not comprised of only women — or serving only women. YWCA has women and men as members, volunteers, supporters and leaders of the organization. Our programs serve women and men, young adults, adolescents and children. We also provide services to other nonprofit organizations and the business community. We are thrilled to have Nordstrom support this effort.
Treasure&Bond is available in Nordstrom stores and online at Nordstrom.com. Product images can be found on the Nordstrom Press Room.
