Something beautiful truly happens when you become a part of something bigger than yourself. Liverpool Los Angeles has joined forces with the Downtown Women’s Center (DWC) and their boutique, MADE by DWC, for an amazing pop-up shop event!
The Downtown Women’s Center is an incredible organization in Downtown Los Angeles that focuses “exclusively on serving and empowering women who are experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless women.” The MADE boutique is a resale boutique that was launched to offer women the chance to earn income while also gaining job skills and experience.
Women are employed within the organization and attend workshops to improve their skills while also getting further employment support services. This method helps women cultivate skills and gain the experience needed to find employment to support their transition out of homelessness.
It was beautiful to see Liverpool and the Downtown Women’s Center come together to create this amazing event. We had delicious brownies and treats for customers to snack on and had an awesome playlist to keep everyone pumped up. The event was such a success that we exceeded our original goal! We can’t wait to partner with them again in the future!
The MADE boutique contains three businesses: Home & Gift Collections, the Resale Boutique, and the Café & Gift Boutique. They sell all-natural soaps, soy-candles and bath salts, as well as cards and journals featuring artwork by the women – all made by the women! Our personal favorites? The beautiful candles and journals!
Thank you to everyone who came to support, shop and donate! And if you want to try one of the best brownies EVER, check out Aunties Bakery and Café @auntiescafe.
