This year, Brilliance in Black, LLC set out to spread the holiday spirit by partnering with The Sierra House in East Orange, NJ to give back to the women and children of the shelter for the holiday season! With the help of several supporters, family, and friends in the community, gift bags were provided for fifteen women and five children as well as extra packages and boxes of things donated to the The Sierra House. As a result of the multitude donations and items purchased personally by Brilliance in Black, we were able to provide the women and children with things such as toiletries, clothes, shoes, toys and a monetary of $150 donation for the shelter!
Overall Brilliance in Black donated over $500 in value of items to the Sierra House. All of the women and staff, who were present, were extremely grateful and inspired to learn that there were people in the world who were willing to give without the expectation of something in return.
Once each of the women and children received a gift bag, the present co founders and supporters were asked to talk to the girls about college life, careers, goals and how to reach them. By the end of the night, The Sierra House was so impressed with Brilliance in Black that they requested we return soon to spread more love, inspiration and encouragement to the women of the shelter.
