A Cup of Love from Cobblestone Cottage
This summer, after thirty-two years, Cobblestone Cottage will be closing its doors, but not until they perform one more act of love for families in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Owner Kathy Allie explains, “When it became clear it was time to close our store, we realized that our decision not only affected us, it impacted our customers, employees, vendors, the many nonprofits that we support and the families that those nonprofits provide for. Assistance League® Santa Clarita has been the recipient of our customers’ favorite annual event-The Brighton Handbag Trade-In. When we realized the customers would no longer be able to bring their handbags in to donate to Assistance League, and that Assistance League would not be able to use the money raised from those handbags to help children in need, we really wanted to come up with one final way to be there for them. We also believe that our customers would want that same opportunity.”
Beginning May 1, the community will have the opportunity to own a unique “Cobblestone Cottage” mug for a twenty-dollar donation to Assistance League Santa Clarita’s signature program, Operation School Bell®. Operation School Bell is focused on providing new school clothing and shoes to students in need and is a program that Assistance League Santa Clarita has participated in for the past thirty years! This year, over 2200 children in Santa Clarita Valley public schools in grades kindergarten through twelfth, were clothed through the program! Operation School Bell has recently expanded to include an Arts Grants Program to support the Arts in schools, Fostering Success which supports students who have aged out of Foster Care and/or are homeless, along with icare for kids which provides students with eye exams and glasses.
Stop by Cobblestone Cottage located at 24335 Magic Mountain Pkwy. in Valencia, California to help them reach their goal of donating four thousand dollars towards Operation School Bell. In doing so, you will be able to bring a bit of that “Cottage” feeling home with you long after the doors close.
