Stoney Clover Lane’s destination patches highlight a myriad of Hamptons favorites – like Wölffer Wine Stand, Stephen Talkhouse, and Gurney’s Resorts. Now, those iconic spots featured in the accessories and travel brand’s collection are serving as a way to give back to local COVID-19 relief efforts.
“If there’s a silver lining to any of this, it’s that we’ve seen so many communities support each other through this challenging time,” Libby Glazer, Stoney Clover Lane Co-Founder, shared. “Our hope is that this initiative can provide some relief to businesses and organizations we love while giving our online customer new patches to explore.”
For the first time ever, the Hamptons patches will be available for purchase online – and all proceeds from the collection will be donated to a charitable cause aligned with the business – or the businesses themselves – to be utilized in support of staff and operations.
“We knew that so many local businesses were hurting from COVID-19, so we wanted to find a way to give back to our incredible partners,” Kendall Glazer, Stoney Clover Lane Co-Founder, noted. “Proceeds from the patches will help support our partners’ staff and operations during this time, as well as organizations like Baby2Baby and Feeding America.”
Proceeds from the Buddha Berry, Duryea’s, Goldberg’s Bagels, Navy Beach, Sen Sushi, and Sag Harbor Cinema patches will support Feeding America, the Astro Pizza patch will support Astro Pizza, the Stephen Talkhouse patch will support Stephen Talkhouse, the Gurney’s Resorts patch will support Baby2Baby, and the Wölffer Wine Stand will support Southampton Hospital Foundation.
“The entire Talkhouse family is grateful for the support of the community during these difficult and unprecedented times,” Nick Kraus, Talkhouse co-owner, expressed. “Having played host ourselves for many years it has been humbling to be on the receiving side of things. We look forward to opening our doors once the coast is clear!”
The Talkhouse has also set up an Employee Relief Fund through www.gofundme.com – with the hopes of raising $50,000 for its staff.
“We understand that safety is paramount and only want to open when it’s safe. We are doing our best to take care of our employees through the SBA programs and the GoFundMe,” Max Honerkamp, who takes care of booking the Talkhouse’s talent, shared. “We are very thankful and fortunate for the support we have already received. When we can open and hopefully get to a place close to normal, we are excited to give back again. We know this has impacted almost everyone and will help however we can.”
In addition to the Stoney Clover Lane collaboration, Gurney’s Resorts – both the Newport, RI and Montauk, NY locations – has launched an initiative to support Food Bank for NYC. “In response to COVID-19, our team is committed to giving back to organizations to help those who are struggling and have been impacted by economic downturn. We are now selling gift cards to be used to book accommodations at any of our three hotels, 25% from each card sold will be donated to Food Bank for NYC, which provides emergency food to vulnerable New Yorkers,” George Filopoulos, Owner of Gurney’s Resorts, added. “We also have collaborated with one of our partners, Stoney Clover Lane to donate 100% of the proceeds of our custom embroidered destination patches to Baby2Baby, whose current mission is to provide supplies to families in need. Outside of charitable donations, we created the #GoneHomeWithGurneys virtual experiences campaign as we felt it was vital to inspire our entire community throughout this challenging time.”
The Hamptons Stoney Clover Lane Destinations collection patches are $12. To view the collection, visit www.stoneycloverlane.com.
Stoney Clover Lane hopes to re-open its East Hampton outpost in the spring.
