The United Way of Davie County and the new downtown Mocksville boutique, Honor Darling, will be partnering during the month of November in a grassroots effort called LIVE HERE GIVE HERE. The effort hopes to build awareness for United Way services that are provided in the community, but also incorporate a lot of fun!
“When approached about the idea, it was a no-brainer,” said Honor Darling owner, Aubrey Draughn. “As an advocate for children in Davie County through my full-time work, I have seen firsthand how the United Way has provided resources to ‘the least of these’ during times of crisis. Honor Darling offers me a unique opportunity to increase awareness for the organization, which is often misunderstood.”
HOW HONOR DARLING PLANS TO PARTICIPATE
Beginning, November 3, upon entering Honor Darling you will immediately notice sales associates wearing LIVE UNITED shirts, window displays will have a common LIVE UNITED theme, and tidbits of information will be spread throughout the store, answering common questions about what the United Way of Davie County provides. In addition, Honor Darling will offer their customers an opportunity to be generous by having the option to add a donation to their transaction when checking out.
WALKING THE WALK AND TALKING THE TALK
Not only will Honor Darling be offering customers the opportunity to support the United Way of Davie County, they’ll be reaching into their own pockets as well. “Our goal is to have all employees give a United Way Building Block gift—or $52. We believe this level of giving is doable as it provides our employees with the chance to give $1 per week for 52 weeks (or a full year). We believe our generosity will shine through
and we hope our example will encourage other local businesses to follow
suit,” said Draughn.
