Throughout the last 14 years, Villon has been proud to work with the local community. This year we are excited to announce that we are expanding our outreach by launching a community-focused project within Villon. Olliv is a Villon cooperative with a mission to engage with various non-profits throughout Brevard County to positively impact different aspects of our community. Through Olliv, we will participate in community outreach events and donate the proceeds from Olliv to the organizations we work with.
Organizations we work with.
Our initiative is to positively impact a diverse range of needs within our community including, but not limited to youth mentoring and development, the environment, domestic violence victim services, hunger, homelessness, animal welfare, and health and wellness. Each year we will select three specific organizations to partner with. By alternating the three organizations, we hope to reach different parts of the community. This year we will be working with Florida WildLife Hospital, Children’s Hunger Project, and NVHS, the National Veteran’s Homeless Support organization.
How it works...
Our goal is to partner with organizations through a multi-faceted approach that includes participating in community outreach events and donating a portion of Olliv merchandise proceeds to the organizations we have partnered with.
After purchasing an Olliv shirt, hat and/or bracelet, Olliv customers have the opportunity to choose one of the three organizations they would like their proceeds to go to by placing the token they are given into the organization’s corresponding jar. Providing you with the option to select the organization allows you to contribute to the cause that resonates with you. All organizations will receive their total charitable contributions at the end of the year.
In addition to donations, we are supporting events hosted by the organizations throughout the year. Our support includes setting up an Olliv tent or providing volunteers as needed to assist with events.
Keith Becher and Cole are our dedicated Olliv representatives that will communicate and coordinate with each organization. Our representatives have personally chosen to work with their organizations and are just as committed to making a positive impact on the community and ensuring our mission is fulfilled.
We want to thank everyone who has supported us throughout the years. We appreciate the support and look forward to the next chapter!
