NEADS Launches Virtual Marketplace – a One-Stop Shop for Goods that Give Back

Princeton, MA, November 5, 2020 – NEADS World Class Service Dogs launched its virtual NEADS Market for the holidays. The NEADS Market is a one-stop shop that features a curated mix of creative and unique products from local makers, artists, and designers including:

  • Handmade gifts and designer wares,
  • Candles, soaps, throws, pillows, and other home goods
  • Bracelets, necklaces, and other jewelry,
  • Dog treats, toys, leashes, collars, and other accessories
  • Men’s and women’s clothes and accessories

Thanks to the generosity of participating vendors, 15% of all purchases go to support NEADS World Class Service Dogs.

“Since 2015, NEADS has hosted Get Dressed. Give Back, a cocktail reception fundraiser that included pop up shops offering a unique and varied selection of clothing, jewelry, and items for the home from local designers and boutiques. Although it looks a little different this year, we’ve brought the same concept to our online market – a unique, curated mix of products from local businesses and other specialty vendors,” says Cathy Zemaitis, NEADS Director of Development. “By moving the market online, we can expand our reach to people across the country, showcase local businesses and specialty vendors, and support our mission of changing lives, one World Class Service Dog at a time.”
