Mozaic, a not-for-profit organization supporting people with disabilities and other barriers in Cayuga, Seneca, and Yates counties, is committed to building relationships and strengthening their community throughout the year. Mozaic is honored to have been able to donate over 600 articles of clothing throughout their three-county community.
This past winter Mozaic ran a brand-new campaign, the “Sock-a-thon” where people could buy custom-made Mozaic socks along with many other styles, all proceeds from this campaign went towards Mozaic’s vital programs and services. However, there was more! For every pair of socks purchased through the campaign, Mozaic planned to donate an additional pair of socks to an area nonprofit in need.
One of the highest requested clothing item at relevant nonprofits are socks and, through this campaign, Mozaic was able to donate over 330 pairs of socks to the Living Will of Yates County, CAP Seneca in Seneca County and the Chapel House in Cayuga County.
Arctic Gear, Mozaic’s commercial hat brand manufactured at Finger Lakes Textiles in Waterloo, NY, also played a big role in making sure their community stayed warm this winter by donating over 300 of their high-quality winter hats. Having the opportunity to donate 100 of them to the children at Keuka Lake School in Penn Yan and the rest being spread out to the House of Concern in Seneca County, CAP of Cayuga in Cayuga County and Milly’s Pantry in Yates County.
“Two of Mozaic’s core values are to ‘collaborate’ and ‘make others successful’,” stated Ashley Burke, Mozaic’s VP of Clinical and Business Operations. “While we know how important it is for us to grow, we know we can only do that surrounded by a strong community. Mozaic is happy to help others in anyway we can.”
