Julie Beebe, owner of Yes! Gallery in Wickford Village and Jake Fahrenholz of Fresh Mode Screen Printing have teamed up to create a limited run of custom ‘Local Love’ apparel. The two small businesses enlisted local designer, Rob Dube, to produce the graphics for the t-shirts, sweatshirts and hats. Not only will the sales of the apparel help the two businesses stay afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic, but proceeds will also benefit the North Kingstown Food Pantry, too.

With kids out of school for an extended period of time and an increased number of residents using the food pantry, shelves are getting depleted at an alarming rate. Though actual food donations are appreciated and encouraged, the food pantry has ten times the buying power for every dollar donated to them. For each t-shirt or hat purchased, $5 will be donated and $10 from every sweatshirt purchase directly benefits the food pantry. Pre-orders for the limited edition apparel can be made online only through April 30. Click here to learn more.
