We like to call it PocketChange. The change in your pocket makes a change in people's lives
profits generated to charity

We believe that the change in your pocket can make a change in people’s lives. We are committed to supporting charities and, since we own 100% of SCOTTeVEST, we choose to donate a significant portion of profits generated to charity.

In addition to amounts we personally donate, SCOTTeVEST donates returned garments that can't be resold. While virtually every other major clothing company and department store in the USA wastefully destroys returned products, we choose to donate these items to a local thrift store that benefits the community.

When we started SCOTTeVEST in 2000, we explored many ways to donate significantly to charities. Our goal is to run a profitable business so we can always support the charities we love.

The main charities that Laura and Scott support are listed below

We do what no other clothing brand does for the community, we donate all of our returned products to our local thrift store. Most people don’t really raise the question “what do companies do with these products?” Well, to answer that question, they throw them away! Yes, it’s shocking and incredibly wasteful. The products are still in near perfect condition, they are just missing a small detail or have a stubborn zipper. We load all of these up and donate them all. You want to know the best part, besides helping people? We get to see the smiling faces of people that got one of our products for a crazy deal, when normally they might not have been able to afford it.
Mountain Humane is on a mission to change lives by connecting pets and people. Our success in making Blaine County a no-kill community is only the start – more than 10,000 dogs and cats are still euthanized annually in Idaho that we know of (not all shelters document and report their population numbers, so that number is likely much higher). This is a huge burden on the staff at these shelters and is a tragedy for the animals. No one wants euthanasia to be the solution for pet overpopulation but not all shelters have the resources or circumstances that allow them to become no-kill. And refusing to euthanize animals if you can’t house and care for them humanely, just to be “no-kill,” is not a humane solution.

The Hunger Coalition builds a healthy community through access to good food and adresses the root causes of food insecurity in collaboration with key partners.

It takes a lot of courage, a lot of heart, and a lot of brainpower to make radical change. The food justice movement is working toward an equitable local food system where everyone can fulfill their right to good food. Those who access food, donate, volunteer, or partner with The Hunger Coalition are essential to the growth of the movement. Join the Good Food Community today to make lasting change in Blaine County.
