Local retailer donates kids’ clothes to Haitian mission
Local retailer, “Infinitely Sweet ~ One Unique Kids Boutique,” recently participated in a selfless act of kindness and reached out to children who need it more than ever.
In a world where the “bottom line” is crucial for retailers, Krystine Vermeer, owner of Infinitely Sweet, has not forgotten to incorporate giving back into her business plan. She has a “donate-ables” section that she uses to clothe children who need it most.
Items from her collection were given to dress the underprivileged on her sister-in-law’s recent mission trip to Haiti. These kids were also receiving food and an education through a United Christians International Organization.
“At the end of each season, we donate the remaining clothes to a not-for-profit charitable organization,” Vermeer said. “It was perfect timing to be able to extend our reach out to children in another country as well. I was brought to tears when I saw the photos and was overwhelmed with emotion and gratitude.”
Infinitely Sweet opened in the summer of 2010 and is at 1651 N. Alpine Road Rockford. The shop caters to newborn, infant, toddler, children and young lady, sizes 0-3 months up to 14/16. The shop offers clothing, shoes, accessories, gifts, jewelry, hair bows and more.
For more about how to donate in the future or for specific store information, contact Vermeer at (815) 381-0099 or visit www.infinitelysweet.com.
