This past Saturday, some Sak Brand Group employees headed out to Brooklyn to volunteer at The Alexine A Fenty School P.S. 139 for New York Cares Day. We had a total blast! NY Cares is a great organization which develops and runs 1,500 hands-on, meaningful volunteer projects each month that provide a lifeline of support to vulnerable children, adults, and communities. In the Fall, NY Cares hosts New York Cares Day which aims to revitalize the school grounds and help the school community kick of the year with whatever they may need.

Our volunteer group spent the day at P.S. 139 doing various activities. Some of us painted the playground, some of us helped throw out old boxes, books, desks, and chairs. Others organized books in classrooms, painted murals, gardened around the school area, and helped teachers organize their classrooms. The teachers and staff were great to work with and our team had such a good time getting to meet the people that make P.S. 139 so successful. Check out some of our fave pics from the day here:

How do you like to give back?

The print of the month, Xen Garden by Olivia Schoeff, is our newest print for the fall season. Xen Garden symbolizes that “the essence of nature encourages inner bravery and courage” and incorporates koi fish and lots of florals. This print is tied to the San Francisco Botanical Garden, one of the most diverse gardens in the world. The San Francisco Botanical Garden is a living museum within Golden Gate Park, offering 55 acres of both landscaped gardens and open spaces, showcasing over 8,000 different kinds of plants from around the world. It offers a place where visitors can experience nature, learn about plants and the environment in an ‘outdoor classroom ‘. They aim for visitors to connect with and more fully understand the need to protect nature.

What college do you attend? I attend The University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, MS.

What’s your major? I am majoring in Speech Pathology and Audiology.

What’s your favorite Sakroots product? My favorite Sakroots product would have to be the smartphone wristlet. It has all the compartments a college girl needs: a phone holder, wallet, and a key ring!

What do you want to do after you graduate? After graduating from USM, I hope to be working in Hattiesburg, MS at the Forrest General Hospital on the children’s floor or at Grace Christian School.

Why did you join the Campus Circle? I enjoy the marketing/retail business. Selling items and making others happy is a joy for me. In my future, I hope to have a business of my own. This is just practice for the days ahead!

What’s a fun fact about you? A fun fact about me: I most always have big hair wherever I go! I love big hair.

What’s you best college experience so far? My best college experience so far has been joining the Big Brother Big Sister program on campus, where we mentor/be a role model for children who have no one to look up to in their life.

Best part about being a campus circle ambassador with Sakroots? Meeting new people every single day has to be the best part about partaking in the Campus Circle Ambassador program! Sharing with other is a passion. With this program, I can do just that.

What do you like most about Sakroots as a brand? I love that Sakroots keeps up with the latest styles and trends.

What do you see yourself being/doing in 15 years? In 15 years from now, I see myself as a successful, working mom. I hope to be working in the school system as a Speech Pathologist and possibly owner of a boutique/working for a great company like Sakroots.

What’s a typical day like at school for you? A typical day at USM for me is attending my speech classes, with my friend Kaleigh, using my wonderful Sakroots book!
