Tanger Outlets in Howell presents the “Tanger Cares Suite” starting with Gleaners starting this Friday

Tanger Outlets in Howell is proud to host the Tanger Cares Suite. This special, complimentary space is provided to local, non-profit charitable groups to build awareness of their organizations. It’s a one-day opportunity to reach Tanger shoppers (& retailers) through the suite from 11:00 AM until 5:00 PM, on the second Friday of the month. This Friday, February 9th, Gleaners Community Food Bank will be collecting non-perishable items for people in need.

• Gleaners Community Food Bank – Friday, February 9, 2018
SUITE G210 (next to Shopper Services)
After the holidays, food donations tend to slow down. This combined with the tough decision many are forced to make during the chilly months to heat or eat, makes this the perfect time to donate food. Help make sure families in the local community won’t have to face this challenge by dropping off non-perishable donations to the TangerCares Suite on February 9th. The first 50 people to donate will receive a free Tanger Outlets charging kit.

• LACASA Collection – Friday, March 9, 2018
SUITE G210 (next to Shopper Services)
LACASA Center assists hundreds of children and adults from our community each year who are victims of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault. Last fall, LACASA opened the LACASA Collection, an upscale resale boutique at the Kroger/Crossroads Town Center in Howell. The unique store is open to the public, and also provides a place for LACASA clients to shop with dignity for the things they need at no charge. All items in the store are donated by local retailers and/or members of the community, and all proceeds directly fund critical victim services at LACASA Center. (The store features furniture, home décor, kitchenware, jewelry, accessories, and clothing for the whole family.) The first 50 people to donate a new or nearly-new item at the TangerCares Suite on March 9 will receive a Tanger Outlets tote bag. Drawings also will be held for LACASA Collection gift certificates.

• WSC/Studio West/Artisan Corner Art Gallery – Friday, June 8, 2018
SUITE to be determined
Since 1973, Work Skills Corporation (WSC) has helped people with disabilities and other barriers find jobs. Over the years, this nonprofit organization has expanded, based on community needs, to include programs in employment and training, home health care, residential services, secondary education, staffing, production and art.
In 2011 WSC opened Studio West Gallery to provide a place for artists with and without disabilities to display and sell their pieces. Located in the heart of downtown Brighton, Studio West gives WSC a face in the community and the opportunity to share their story. This public gallery features paintings, photographs, ceramic pieces, jewelry and accessories from artists across Michigan.
Artisan Corner, the WSC art program, was developed to diversify entrepreneurial opportunities for individuals with disabilities. Many of the artisans have difficulties with cognitive processing and/or have limited communication skills; creating art allows them to have a “voice.” Artisan Corner provides a safe place for them to express their emotions and process their experiences. Artisans take pride in displaying their finished items at Studio West Gallery. When their artwork sells it provides income directly to the artists. It also makes stunning artwork affordable and accessible to the community.

Visitors are encouraged to stop in to find out more.
