Bellissima loves the communities that it serves and strives to give back in ways that are important to our customers and associates. Supporting women, children, and the environment are prominent ways in which we give back to our communities.
The organizations we support include:
Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre
DEWC provides support, refuge, and shelter to hundreds of women and children of the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, who have been subjected to violence, homelessness, addictions, and poverty. More information can be found on their website www.dewc.ca.
Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter
The Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter strives to create a community free from family violence and abuse. Their mission is to support individuals and families in their efforts to live a life free from violence and abuse.
Through their efforts, and the numerous programs they offer, they have helped thousands of individuals in need. For more information please visit their website https://www.calgarywomensshelter.com/home
SOS Children’s Villages
In countries all around the world, SOS Children’s Villages provides abandoned, orphaned and vulnerable children with a caring, loving and secure family environment. More information can be found on their website www.soschildrensvillages.ca.
Various Food Banks
Periodically our stores will run promotions that involve bringing in a food item for the local food bank in exchange for a discount on clothing.
The Red Cross
At Bellissima we also believe that we are part of a larger, global, community and as such we periodically donate to The Red Cross during times of humanitarian crisis.
Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation
Our stores run events at various times during the year to raise money towards breast cancer education and awareness.
