Giving Back has always been a core value of The Bridal Collection. That’s why we are committed to being involved in our community, both locally and globally. We believe that charitable donations and supporting the community are as important as the service we offer to our brides and other guests.
Take a look at some of the ways we are striving to make a difference!
With Our Team
Service Project Days
We recognize that each member of our team has unique gifts and abilities to share with others. Every year, The Bridal Collection gives all staff members the opportunity to select a paid day to spend working with the charity of their choice.
In World Crisis Relief
Donations to the Mothers’ Union in Africa
The Mothers’ Union is an international Christian membership charity that strives to provide family care for people in need. Rooted in the belief in prayer, faith and fellowship, The Mothers’ Union promotes healthy marriages, strong parental skills, stable family life, the protection of children and the care of those affected by adversity. The Mothers’ Union works with churches across Africa to boost local economies by renting wedding gowns to brides. We are proud to support this effort by donating our wedding gowns for the churches to use. The money earned from renting these gowns goes toward providing food, shelter, education and medical care for orphans in need. For more information, visit www.mothersunion.org
Purchase for a Promise
Every fall, The Bridal Collection donates a portion of our proceeds to the purchase of treadle sewing machine for impoverished women in India, Kenya, Uganda, Bolivia, and other countries. This program also provides sewing training so these women can learn a professional skill that they can use to support themselves, their families and their communities. In 2016, we donated 25 sewing machines to help jump-start these new seamstresses into a new profession and a new life.
The International Support of Children
In partnership with World Vision, we are pleased to have the opportunity to sponsor children in times of hardship or crisis by offering donations that provide medical care, education, nutritious food and access to clean water. To learn more, visit www.worldvision.org
