Style Saves will host its annual Back-To-School event at MANA Wynwood Convention Center August 13-14. Now in its twelfth year, Style Saves is sourcing donations to hit its goal of outfitting 15,000 students across South Florida with necessities for the upcoming school year. At its core, Style Saves is about supporting underserved students and their families, as well as community-building.
After two years of contactless events, Style Saves is returning to its original fun-filled weekend of events for students and families, while “shopping” for new uniforms, sneakers, school supplies, and accessories, all in a department store-style format. Students and families are encouraged sign up for a designated day and time slot here. The organization will also welcome event volunteer sign-ups here.
Style Saves founder Rachael Russell Saiger and Vice President Isabela Rangel Grutman spent time during quarantine creating a private label brand of uniforms, sneakers, school supplies, and accessories to streamline the event and expand their offerings in order to provide more families and students with the resources they need.
Students from more than 1,000 schools and organizations will benefit from the annual event, including: Miami-Dade Public Schools, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Voices For Children, His House, Communities In Schools, Irie Foundation, Mentor Network, Lotus House, and The Guatemala-Mayan Center.
