East Coast Creative Owner & Founder Monica Mangin volunteered with Worthwhile Wear as the the lead designer to renovate an abandoned farm house into a residential housing facility for women freed from trafficking in the New York, Philadelphia, and New Jersey areas. “The Well” renovations were led by Monica and completed by volunteer teams over the course of 5 months. Worthwhile Wear’s residential home, “The Well”, officially opened on January 1, 2015.
In 2014 East Coast Creative partnered with Worthwhile Wear to launch two retail shops that both provide jobs for residents of “The Well” and also raise funds to support the organization’s efforts domestically and internationally. Monica designed the retail spaces and worked hands-on with volunteers to prepare the 8000 sq/ft location. The Freedom Boutique (selling handmade items and clothing, made from international victims of trafficking) and Worthwhile Thrift (an upscale thrift store) both provide funds to further the fight against human trafficking.
