Chicks give big to charity

Highland Village boutique and gift store, Chicks Dig it…and Guys do too!, recently donated over $21,000 worth of clothing, home décor and store fixtures to Denton County Friends of the Family.

Friends of the Family Community Relations Director, Erin Carney, was overwhelmed when she realized the size of the donation.

“We are so truly appreciative of the donations of clothing, home goods and the fixtures for our thrift store. The clothing, especially the quality and brands, is something that we can only dream to provide to our clients.” said Carney.

“With the partnership of these generous donations and our continued compassionate support, we truly can make families, especially the women and children at our shelter, understand how much Denton County supports them and how no one deserves to be a victim.”

Chicks Dig it owner, Amy Jenkins, said that she loves partnering with Denton County Friends of the Family and many other nonprofit organizations in the community.

“We are honored to have the opportunity to pay it forward to those who need a little “bling” and comfort in their lives. We are truly blessed knowing that we can support Friends of the Family and positively impact those around us,” said Jenkins.

Friends of the Family provides shelter and free outreach services to those who have been affected by relationship violence and/or sexual assault.
Services include a 24-hour crisis line, counseling for adults and children, education, violence intervention and prevention and many other programs.
