posted Dec 10, 2012 - 3:58:32pm
The MainStreet DeLand Association, in cooperation with Downtown DeLand merchants, will host a Charity Night 6-9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14.
Merchants will offer deals and discounts in exchange for donations that will go directly to West Volusia charities.
“We are really looking forward to a big turnout,” said Cam Amici, owner of Dressed Boutique at 108 S. Woodland Blvd. “We hope to be able to make some children very happy this Christmas.”
Customers of Lace & Accessories at 140 N. Woodland Blvd. may donate bath towels or kitchen towels for the Duvall Home in Glenwood. In exchange, each donor will receive a free key-finder and 20 percent off any purchase.
Not all the excitement and deals are on Woodland Boulevard. Nest on Artisan Alley, which runs between New York Avenue and Georgia Avenue just west of the Boulevard, invites shoppers to “A Holiday in Artisan Alley” party featuring a performance by singer and songwriter Magda Hiller. Admission to the party is free for everyone, and those who bring a donation of nonperishable food or cash for The Neighborhood Center of West Volusia may reach into “Santa’s bag” for a gift.
Bring pet food, flea spray or pet shampoo to The Muse Book Shop, 112 S. Woodland Blvd., and get 50 percent off any new cookbook, a used cookbook for free, or 20 percent off any one item in the store. All donations made at The Muse will go to Animal Rescue Konsortium (ARK).
Donate pet food at Grrs and Purrs, 116 N. Woodland Blvd., for Journey’s End Animal Sanctuary, and receive 25 percent off any Christmas item.
Donate toiletries or a nonperishable food item at Renie’s Retreat, 108 S. Artisan Alley, and receive 20 percent off any service. Donations made at Renie’s will go to Cornerstone Hospice of Lake County.
NewFangled Modern Market, 102 S. Woodland Blvd., is asking shoppers to bring in gently worn coats or jackets for the Share the Warmth Coat Drive.
This will be NewFangled’s third year collecting jackets. Owner Courtney Hamil started the drive to help her son’s classmates.
“My son came home from school and told me that there were several kids in his class without jackets, and it just broke my heart,” Hamil said.
Since 2010, Hamil has collected 40-60 coats and delivered them to local schools and to The Neighborhood Center of West Volusia. Each person who brings a coat or jacket to NewFangled this year will receive 15 percent off his or her purchase.
Ten percent of the day’s sales at Wolfe’s Gallery, 119 N. Woodland Blvd., will go to the local chapter of The Arc, which helps adults who have developmental disabilities.
