Redwood Classics Apparel and PromoKitchen Launch Limited Edition Merch Drop

Sweatshirts and Hoodies to Benefit PromoKitchen’s Educational Events

TORONTO, ONTARIO [AUGUST 20, 2021] - Redwood Classics Apparel, a Toronto-based premium clothing solutions provider, and PromoKitchen, a (501c) non-profit that provides education and mentorship in the promotional products industry, have joined together to launch a limited edition set of sweatshirts and hoodies that will only be available from August 20 - September 3, 2021.

As a non-profit organization, PromoKitchen was deeply affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing lockdowns. Unable to hold their popular in-person events, they turned to Redwood Classics Apparel to help them launch their first ever fundraising merch drop.

“As a huge fan of Redwood clothing, I’m so happy that they’re our partners for our first merch drop,” says Kate Plummer, PK Chef - Vice Chair and Vice President of Clearmount. “Kathy Cheng and Redwood Classics have always been a big supporter of our education and mentorship programs, and I love that they’re willing to experiment and have fun with us.”

For her part, Kathy Cheng, President and Founder of Redwood Classics Apparel, was only too happy to donate sweatshirts to this initiative. “I am a big believer in mentorship changing careers and lives. PromoKitchen provides opportunities for everyone in our industry to succeed, particularly those who don’t often feel seen or included,” says Kathy. “They have always been there for us, and we are thrilled to be able to work with them on this unique fundraising initiative.”

PromoKitchen was keen on working with a partner that focused on quality, sustainability, and diversity, making Redwood Classics a natural choice. “I am such a fan of the work they are doing and their commitment to supplier diversity, to the planet, and to fostering a made-in-Canada apparel value chain,” says Johanna Gottlieb, PK Chef-Chair and VP of Sales at Axis Promotions. “Redwood Classics is a great example of the standards all organizations should live by. We are grateful to tie our name with theirs and walk the walk alongside them.” 

The merch can be purchased online from the custom collab shop, generously donated by commonsku, providers of software that powers the fastest growing distributors in the promo industry. commonsku’s CRM, Order Management, and eCommerce platform enables distributors to seamlessly work with their customers, team members, and supplier partners.
