Five Pound Apparel announces partnership with The Food Bank

April 20, 2015 in Cause marketing

Five Pound Apparel and Ozarks Food Harvest began a new partnership this week, both online at and in stores.

For every T-shirt sold, 5 Pound Apparel will provide a donation to Ozarks Food Harvest to purchase five pounds of food. Children, families and seniors struggling with hunger across southwest Missouri will benefit from the partnership. This is not the first time the local retailer has raised funds for Ozarks Food Harvest, but this new initiative will provide year-round support for those in need.

Bryan Simpson, Owner of 5 Pound Apparel, said, “This partnership is an opportunity for us to create real impact locally while fulfilling our mission of giving back to those in need, all while supporting the life-changing work that Ozarks Food Harvest does every day.”

Five Pound Apparel was founded in 2010 with the goal of providing support to nonprofits locally and globally. The store has locations in Downtown Springfield and the new Farmers Park development.

“We’re grateful to count 5 Pound Apparel as a sustaining partner. Just like Ozarks Food Harvest, it has the mission of bettering the community it serves,” said Denise Gibson, OFH’s Director of Development and Communication. “People will love this new way to support a great local business, while helping their neighbors in need.”
