This labor day weekend, RVNG/Commend is joining efforts to support Houston. We’ll be collecting goods (mini toiletries, dental hygiene essentials, first aid items, pads & tampons, diapers, socks & underwear) to send via the New Hamilton Beach Civic Association. We’ll also be donating 10% of the weekend’s sales at Commend to Harvey relief. Thank you to our friends Rachel Barnhart (Soap Library) and Lauren Willson (who will be donating 100% of proceeds from her Salve sales in-store) for activating this effort!
