On August 1, Local Laundry launched its latest t-shirt in collaboration with the Calgary Flames and Calgary Flames Foundation. The Flames Community T-shirt aims to give back aiding in building and supporting the community, while celebrating the Flames 2020 season and retro jerseys. Fifteen dollars from every Flames Community T-shirt sold will be donated to the Calgary Flames Foundation to continue to support charities and groups in Calgary.
The design of the t-shirt is bold, athletic and appeals to all ages with a sleek, appealing design. By utilizing Canadian manufacturing, production and warehousing, the Flames Community T-shirt supports a diversified Canadian economy while embodying both the Calgary Flames, the Calgary Flames Foundation and Local Laundry’s core values of investing in community support and local initiatives.
“We aim to build community through everything we do. Every time we collaborate through our Partnership Program, we always incorporate a giveback component,” stated Connor Curran, Local Laundry Co-Owner. “We’re thrilled to be able to donate $15 from every Calgary Flames collaboration t-shirt back to the Calgary Flames Foundation.”
Available now for a limited time, the special edition retro Flames red community t-shirt, exclusively designed by Calgarian Erin Lawrence, allows Calgarians to give back to local charities, support the Canadian supply chain and celebrate the Flames 2020 season.
“We want to continue to partner with Canadian organizations and charities that aid in our mission to build community while supporting a diversified Canadian economy,” said Dustin Paisley, Local Laundry, Co-Owner.
Since the start of COVID-19, the Calgary Flames Foundation has distributed $1.4 million to 25 groups and charities through the Calgary Flames COVID-19 Community Support Program including STARS, the Mustard Seed, Meals on Wheels, Drop-In Centre, the YW, Canadian Mental Health Association and CUPS. Teaming up with the Calgary Flames Foundation to enhance community-building efforts was an easy decision for Local Laundry.
“This partnership is important to us for many reasons. Partnering with a Calgary company in Local Laundry on a product that shows pride for both the Calgary Flames and our community spirit while supporting charities in southern Alberta that need the help right now,” said Candice Goudie, Executive Director of Charitable Foundations & Community Investment. “#UnitedbyCommunity, means just that. We are better together and can make a difference together.”
