Mellow Monkey teamed up with three other Leading Connecticut Local Independent Gift Shops on Friday, March 8th to Celebrate International Women's Day.
Thanks to the following shops for donating 15% of International Women's Day sales to The Maren Sanchez Home Foundation.
The Maren Sanchez Home Foundation was started out of necessity following the violent attack that took the life of Maren Victoria Sanchez at a Milford High School in 2014.
The mission of the foundation is to educate and empower girls and young women to defend themselves against emotional, psychological and verbal manipulation and physical violence.
