As a family-owned business, it is important to us, and a reflection of our faith, to be involved in our community, both locally and globally. We feel charitable donations and community involvement is equally 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. “Purchase for a Promise” “Purchase for a Promise”is a wonderfully unique program that is very close to our hearts. Every fall, The Bridal Collection donates a portion of our proceeds to the purchase of treadle sewing for impoverished women in India. This program also provides sewing training so that these women may learn a professional skill that they can use to support themselves, their families and their communities. In 2012, we helped to donate over 20 sewing machines to help jump-start these new seamstresses into new profession and a new life. “Purchase for a Promise” contributes to the education and empowerment of women and we are so proud to be a part of that mission. 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. We also participate in the Samaritan’s Purse project, Operation Christmas Child, which provides Christmas gifts to children in third world countries.
Right Here in Colorado
Donations to Local Organizations While we constantly strive to better our world, we also realize there are many opportunities to help others here in the Denver area. Our store contributes to many local charities, including the Denver Rescue Mission, the “Make a Wish” Foundation and the local Toys for Tots program, among others. We are proud to partner with the “Say Yes to the Prom” program which provides free prom gowns for inner-city teens. Supporting the Arts We know how important the arts are to our community and we believe deeply in cultivating the talent and potential in our young people. The Bridal Collection makes yearly contributions to Le Ball de Ballet/Denver Ballet Guild and the Fine Arts Foundation as well as the local children’s theater group, Audience of One.
