Secret Smiles

We're half way through our month-long drive to collect towel sets and night lights for the very worthy organization, Secret Smiles. Two things have come to light the last couple of weeks. First: the sheer generosity of our clients and customers. We have had donations sent directly from online vendors from those who can't make it in, or just dropped off with nothing but a "Hello and thanks for what you're doing". And second: not very many of you are aware of what Secret Smiles does. Here is the link to their site SECRET SMILES. In a nutshell, Secret Smiles provides cribs, beds and bedding to families without. The history of the charity is rather sentimental, as one of the New York founders was killed in the 9/11 attacks and the Dayton chapter was founded by her sister in her memory. The group is run by non-paid volunteers and operating costs are minimal. The Scouts are honored to be acquainted with several of the trustees of Secret Smiles Dayton; they are some wonderful, selfless people.

So, during the remainder of November, Vintage Scout Interiors continues to team up with Secret Smiles to collect for their "Dream Big" pillowcases. The pillowcases will include a towel set and nightlight, among other items such as journals, toiletries, etc. and be distributed to needy children. To make it worth your while, when you donate a new towel set or nightlight at Vintage Scout, the Scouts will in turn offer you 30% off one item in the studio.

For more information on our drive or how you can donate, call the studio at 937-312-9461. Vintage Scout in located in Historic Centerville, Ohio at 60 N. Main Street. Store hours are Monday through Friday 10-6, and Saturday 10-3.
