Beaders Give Back — Bead ‘n Feed — Food Drive

Calling all beaders! Generosity abounds. Give and  ye shall receive!

Beaders Give Back Week
Bead ‘n’ Feed
July 15 – 21
All the stores within the Southern California Local Bead Store Association are spreading the love during this Beaders Give Back Week — July 15 through 21. Each store is working with a local chosen charity; please check with other bead stores to see what fun they are having.

Beadahs has chosen the Westside Food Bank as our charity. As thanks for giving back to your community through Beadahs, we will spread our love to you too in the form of a discount coupon.

Beadahs will be collecting non-perishable food (canned and/or boxed item), cash and other miscellaneous items to donate to the Westside Food Bank. Donate cash or other items and get the same amount in a thank you discount coupon (up to 40% off). As an example, give $25 or 25 food items and get a 25% off coupon. Discretion will be applied to assess value of donated items. Discounts cannot be combined with other offers.
