12 Months of Giving
May 2016 Update: What started out as a "12 Months of Giving" campaign has morphed into an
ongoing event. Through the generous support of our customers and suppliers, we were able to
donate over $45,000 to local charities in the first 12 months!! The charities needed those funds
and as a result, we plan to go forward with it, in support of local charities. There may be some
modifications to the program but our original intent todonate funds to local charities will
continue. Heirloom Linens thanks you for your continued support.
