“We’ve got a lot of exciting things planned for 2017 that we believe will help us better connect with our customers and further increase the charitable impact of Treasure&Bond,” continued Jackson Brown. Currently found in Women’s, Men’s and Girls’ apparel, Women’s and Girls’ shoes, Soft Accessories, Jewelry and Hosiery departments, in 2017 Treasure&Bond will be expanding to include Boys’ apparel later this year. The spring collection will continue to focus on a classic, all-American aesthetic, but with a reworked, lived-in twist. Customers can expect to find lots of easy-to-wear pieces that can be layered for an effortless, casual look – soft tees, worn-in button-downs, cozy sweaters and must-have denim favorites.
The company also announced that from February 1, 2017 through January 31, 2018, Treasure&Bond will support the efforts of YWCA associations in the United States and Canada. In the U.S., funds will support YWCA USA’s TechGYRLS initiative, which works to raise interest, confidence, and abilities in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) among girls aged nine to 12. Annually, 260,000 girls, children, youth and teens are building their futures at YWCA through programs including girls’ empowerment, TechGYRLS and other STEM programs. Eight-nine percent of TechGYRLS participants reported an increase in their self-esteem and that same percentage identified at least three non-traditional careers they could attain. Seventy-two percent of those served in YWCA girls’ empowerment, children’s, youth and teen programs have incomes at or below the federal poverty level.
“TechGYRLS teaches girls how to use technological tools and enhance their critical thinking and problem-solving skills,” said Tycely Williams, vice president of development, YWCA USA. “The program offers girls a supportive environment in which to enhance their curiosity and overall knowledge in the areas of design, animation, programming and robotics. We also know that exposure to this type of programming provides girls with the confidence and skills they need to achieve excellence in any profession they chose to pursue. We are thrilled to have Nordstrom support this effort.”
Treasure&Bond will support various YWCA youth programs in Canada.
