Asheville Yoga Center Raises Donations for Pisgah Legal Services All Month
10% of Drop-In and Community Class Sales on Thursday, March 28 Donated
Asheville Yoga Center prepares for a full month of fundraising for Pisgah Legal Services as its Charity of the Month partner. The organization strives to pursue justice by providing legal assistance and advocacy to help low-income individuals in Western North Carolina meet their basic needs. Some of their charitable work includes; providing legal aid to those living in poverty, partnering with agencies to make sustainable changes for people in crisis and improving policies which impact thousands of low-income individuals in the area.
“We are honored to be able to partner with Pisgah Legal and support their efforts in helping improve the lives of those in our community. As members of the yoga community, we feel that it is our duty to do what we can to help those in need of basic living rights,” says Melissa Driver, General Manager of Asheville Yoga Center.
From March 1 until March 31, donation boxes will be located in both the Studio and Boutique for monetary donations. On Thursday, March 28, 10% of all drop-in and community class sales will be directly donated to the non-profit. You can show support by coming in for a class at the Studio or by visiting the Boutique!
“Pisgah Legal Services is grateful for the support we can receive from the Asheville Yoga Center and other local businesses. We rely on community support to provide free legal help to those who need it most and also to raise awareness of issues facing people living in poverty here in our mountains. When we come together to ensure that our most vulnerable residents have access to justice, we all thrive,” says Ally Wilson, Director of Development, Pisgah Legal Services.
If you’d like to learn more about the organization or speak to a representative, please come by the Studio on March 28 for our donation day. A member of the Pisgah Legal team will be present to answer any questions regarding their work in the community.
