COLORS FOR A CAUSE

February 1, 2017, we launch our newest campaign, COLORS FOR A CAUSE. Colors for a Cause leverages our number one selling style, the New Englander®, to help raise awareness and funds for national and local charities. For every New Englander® (cause/color) purchased during the campaign, 10% WILL BE GIVEN BACK to local and national charities. 

GIVE BACK. GET BACK.

In addition to giving back to charities, we are giving back to you, our customer. For every New Englander® (cause/color) purchased during the campaign, YOU WILL GET 5% BACK. It’s our way of saying thank you for supporting our mission of giving back. 

Stay tuned for more details.

Christmas in the City

Christmas in the City is a 100% volunteer-based non-profit organization that supports and mentors Boston’s homeless population. At the core of the organization is the spirit of the Christmas season – kindness, goodwill, and caring for neighbors. Each year, Christmas in the City hosts an extravagant party for over 3,000 children and parents from homeless shelters in Boston and surrounding communities. At the event, children receive the gift he or she specifically requested, as well as participate in a variety of games, visits with Santa, partake in exhibits from local museums, meet with dentists and hairdressers, enjoy a catered lunch – and much, much more.

Helping those in need is a hallmark of Charles River Apparel’s mission to help the community in any way possible. In 2015, Charles River Apparel partnered with Christmas in the City for the second year of the Facebook "1 Page Like = 1 Garment for Someone in Need" campaign
