October 23, 2020 – The Twig is excited to announce they are opening a second location in the Lakewood Ranch/Bradenton area by summer of 2021. This location will enable the non-profit based in Venice to expand their reach of blessing the lives of children in foster care. Conveniently located on SR64 just east of 75 this location will be easily accessible for the many foster families located throughout Sarasota and Manatee counties.
Currently serving around 300 children every month, The Twig is a special place with a boutique only open to children in foster care. From newborns through young adults who have aged out of care are able to shop with dignity for clothing and shoes completely free of charge. Beyond just clothing they are receiving love and encouragement from volunteers serving as personal shoppers.
In September 2020 The Twig was gifted an initial $200,000 grant from The Charles and Margery Barancik Foundation. An additional $50,000 matching grant has also been offered by the Barancik foundation. To help fund this initiate and have your gift matched visit www.TheTwigCares.com/Branchingout
