Judy Hartford, owner of Red Mannequin Boutique and Bananas, and Stina Sayre, owner of Stina Sayre Design — both board members of the Friends of Family Planning of Martha’s Vineyard — are taking their convictions to their cash registers.
On Saturday, August 11, they will lead Shop for Women’s Health: Support Women’s Rights, a day-long effort to raise funds for the Island’s community Family Planning clinic. The women will donate 5 per cent of their shops’ sales to Friends of Family Planning of Martha’s Vineyard. They are asking other Island merchants to join them as well, by donating two to five per cent of their sales.
Friends of Family Planning of Martha’s Vineyard, Inc. supports Family Planning of Martha’s Vineyard programs, and promotes gynecological, reproductive and sexual health care on Martha’s Vineyard.
More merchants are needed to be part of this fundraising effort. For additional information or to get involved, contact Judy Hartford at 508-395-2486 or Stina Sayre at 508-560-1011 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
