Gift Certificates For PEDVAC Boutique For Christmas

Hello There,

Vivienne here with a quick update just in time for Christmas.  As we reflect over the past year, there are so many people who have crossed out paths.

The idea of gift giving has in some cases become so extravagant and commercialized that the obvious value of something small and meaningful has almost disappeared.

This year won’t you consider supporting a worthy charity like PEDVAC which does so much for so many in need in our region and beyond? There are folks in need all year round, but especially at this time of year who, even with our prices well below the competition, cannot afford to purchase perhaps some housewares, even a warm winter coat or our famous mittens made from recycled sweaters.
