Pre-Spring Cleaning Donation Drive

Thursday, February 22 | 4:30-6:30 pm

Empty your drawers and cabinets you’ve been meaning to get to – all for a good cause!

Now that the holidays are over and the seasons are changing, you’re probably sitting on some hats that aren’t your vibe, maybe some skincare products that won’t work for you, some gloves that are too small, onesies for your kiddos who are onto pull-ups, and various other things that could be donated mindfully to someone in need.

Organizations like Rose Haven are crucial to helping women-especially survivors of intimate partner abuse-stay safe and stable – so we’re helping facilitate donations at this little event.

Visit the tasting room on Thursday, Feb. 22, and bring any of the supplies listed on the top needs list and get a coupon for a free glass of wine to be redeemed at a future Division food & wine pop-up event.

We’ll have the wine flowing, great local beers, and live tunes from DJ JBreezy bumping in our production space at The Wine Yard. Plus we’re always looking out for those interested in NA bevs, so we will have those on deck.

We are expecting a big turnout, so show up on time to make sure you get in on the deliciousness!
