Sudbury's Stitch & Stone store is stepping up to help the Sudbury Women's Centre on Black Friday this week. 

Black Friday is regarded as a huge marketing and retail shopping day and in some circles it is the kickoff day to the Christmas shopping season.

Stitch & Stone has announced it will donate 10 per cent of all Black Friday sales (in store and online on Nov. 25, 2022) to the Sudbury Women's Centre. 

“As a local business owner, it has always been extremely important to me to give back to the community I live, work and raise my family in, and the Sudbury’s Women Centre is an organization that I’ve always held very close to my heart,” said Gabrielle Roy, Owner of Stitch & Stone. 

“They run such important programming and provide life altering resources and support for women in our community. This is just one way we can help raise awareness and give back to support the amazing work they do.”

Over the past 40 years, the Sudbury Women’s Centre has been dedicated to providing information, referral, and support services to women who have been impacted by violence and/or difficult life circumstances. The Centre offers key tools and resources that assist women in addressing issues of systematic discrimination and violence. 

Guilia Carpenter, the executive director of the women's centre, was pleased with the announcement. 

"We have truly built some amazing partnerships with various local businesses in our community.  They all share the same passion as we do, which is helping our local community to live their best lives,” said Carpenter.  

“Without partnerships like the one we have with Stitch & Stone we are not able to do the work that we do."

The Stitch & Stone Give Back Friday event will take place this Friday, Nov. 25, 2022, both online and in store. For more information about Stitch & Stone, visit them in store at 1332 Kingsway or online at www.stitchandstone.ca.
