At The Pocketbook Agency, we believe that giving back to our community and being socially responsible is an important part of our daily lives. The Pocketbook Agency has participated in many charity events that seek relief for important issues and will be participating in many more throughout 2017. We aim to focus on working with organizations that support various areas that we feel are important in our community and around the world. Specifically, organizations that work with women, children and individuals re-entering the workforce. The Pocketbook Agency’s goal through social responsibility is to create a positive impact on society, through local in support of organizations.
On this page, we will document some of the fun charitable events we have attended with various organizations we support. Please feel free to reach out to us to know more about getting involved!
HOLA: Heart of Los Angeles
In October 2016, The Pocketbook Agency attended a charity event in support of HOLA, Heart of Los Angeles. HOLA is a charity that provides underserved youth with programs in academics, arts, and athletics to develop their potential and pursue their educational dreams. For every person who attended and purchased items from Barneys New York, 10% of the proceedings were donated to Heart of Los Angeles in support of their programs. We had so much fun at this event, and look forward to supporting this amazing organization more in the future!
Operation School Bell’s Prom Day
On March 29th, one of our Co-Founders participated in a charity event in Los Angeles called Operation School Bell’s Prom Day. This event was hosted by the Assistance League of Los Angeles and was promoted over the course of two days. This event provided over 200 homeless and low-income LAUSD high school girls with dresses, shoes, and accessories for prom! The event was a huge success and an amazing opportunity to help young women in a local community. Giving back is a great way to become more involved in communities. The Pocketbook Agency was honored to be a part of such a great organization and looks forward to attending more events in the future.
