PUR SKIN gives back…

PUR SKIN in partnership with Gourmondo Co, and the support of 17  top women business leaders will provide over 1,000 meals to more than 100 at-risk youth over the next two weeks.

“Our mission at Pur Skin is focused around giving back to our local community and we wanted to partner with a company that is providing meals for children in need, during this uncertain time.”  Schwind shared.

Why Pur Skin Supports YouthCare

YouthCare is a local non-profit working to end youth homelessness.  YouthCare offers support in a variety of ways from providing weekly dinners to offering on-the-job training and employment opportunities. Understanding this type of support was in greater need during Washington State’s shelter in place order, Gourmonda founder, Leinonen reached out to her friend and fellow entrepreneur, Denice Schwind at Pur Skin. 

Together they tapped into their circle of Seattle’s top women entrepreneurs to rally together and assist youth being cared for “around the clock” in 11 YouthCare locations across Seattle, WA. Within an hour, a number of their colleagues generously jumped in to help provide healthy, gourmet meals as well as personalized notes expressing hope and encouragement. The meals include an entree, side dish, snack, and dessert.

“It’s amazing what YouthCare is doing to lift these kids up from the streets – and provide them the education and job training they desperately need to enter into the workforce and have promising futures.” “I have had the privilege of watching first-hand how some of these youth have grown and found success, and am proud to work with them,”  said Leinonen.
