Impressions and Ink Kitchen have pulled the industry together to support a great local organization that does great work with the estimated 4,000 people without a home living in Long Beach.
Ink Kitchen is producing a hand-done printing of the poster at the Impressions show in Long Beach.
The posters can be procured for a suggested donation of $10 to benefit a non-profit called Care Closet LBC serving unhoused folks in Long Beach. You can watch them being printed and purchase one at the walkway between the main hall and the back atrium.
There has been a tremendous coming together of the garment decoration community to make a serious contribution here in Long Beach. The donation last year was over $7000 with an additional $10,ooo of garments going to the program. This year the cash donation will be close to $20,000 before a squeegee is even pulled!
Exhibitors have put aside competition and really have stepped up. Here is a list of the generous contributors and their booth numbers at the show. They all deserve a great deal of credit for stepping up.
