Partner Highlight: Project 615
Get to know our local partner, Project 615!
Project 615 was first formed in the summer of 2010 after co-founders Derek Evans & Matt Blinco visited one of the nation’s largest homeless communities, Skid Row, in downtown Los Angeles, California. After their visit, Derek and Matt decided to start Project 615, a local store back home in Nashville, TN where they could employ and empower those recovering from homelessness and addiction. With the creation and sales of apparel that appeals to the local community, Project615 has since donated over $500,000 to world changing causes and employed over 50 people in the increasing homeless population of Nashville.
In an effort to continuously serve the community, Project 615 has recently created a #NashvilleStrong campaign with 100% of the proceeds going towards relief from the recent tornado that hit Nashville on March 3. Over $200,000 in donations have already been made to give back to our Nashville neighbors.
Not only is the apparel awesome and fun to wear, but you know your money is always going to a positive cause when shopping at Project 615.
