  EMBROIDERY NETWORK FOUNDATION
 

Mission Statement:
The Embroidery Network Foundation (ENF), a 501(c)(3) entity, established by the National Network of Embroidery Professionals, is designed to provide a channel for the commercial embroidery industry to respond to persons in need. The focus of the Embroidery Network Foundation is the collection of and distribution of new clothing to women's shelters and responding to those in need when they are faced with national or natural disasters.



Most Recent Shipment:
*80 Pounds of new clothing was shipped to 3 shelters on August 25, 2011 as a result of the DoDuds Appparel Drive held at Embroidery Mart-EAST in Nashville.

*117 Pounds of new clothing was shipped to 4 shelters on July 7, 2011.

CONTRIBUTIONS:
* Clothing Donations - The commercial embroidery industry represents a resource of new clothing, such as samples, mis-marked inventory and over-runs, which can be donated to those in need.

* Embroidery Supplies and Equipment - Through the ENF, embroiderers can contribute embroidery supplies and equipment to assist fellow shop owners who have experienced unforeseen damage in a disaster.

* Financial Donations - Are fundamental to meeting the goals of the ENF. They allow the Foundation to reach beyond the existing supply of donated new clothing to meet the specific needs of a shelter, family, school or other entity needing help. Proceeds from the sale of the Hooper Collectible Figurines also expand the endeavors of the Foundation.

Management:
A volunteer Board and staff administer the ENF. Therefore one hundred percent of all financial contributions go toward meeting the goals of the ENF. All clothing is inventoried upon receipt and upon disbursement. All persons contributing to the ENF are mailed an acknowledgement of their donation.

PROGRAMS:
* Do Duds, the Women's Shelter Program - This is a clothing collection drive, held at NNEP events, for women's shelters.



* Hooper Collectibles Figurines Program - This is a fundraising vehicle for the ENF. The Collectibles are available for purchase at all NNEP events and may be purchased by mail.



* Disaster Relief Program - This program was established in response to the Hurricane Katrina Disaster and will remain in place to meet on-going and future needs. The Disaster Relief Program collects new clothing and/or purchases requested items for persons or groups with whom the ENF is working.
