Dear Valued Friend,

My name is Shelden Gibbs and I am the owner and CEO of Classic Knot. At just 11 years old, in May 2016, I launched my Buffalo based-business with the help of my mother; and thanks to her and a strong network of supporters, my business continues to grow.

In 2015, it was reported that 54% of children in Buffalo live in poverty; this results in many of my fellow students being unprepared for their first day of school. I would like to help meet this need, and extend to others, the same support that I’ve received.

This summer I will be partnering with the New Hope Community Center,  we are hosting our First Annual, “Classic Pack” book bag drive and giveaway. Until August 30th, we will be collecting book bags and school supplies throughout the city of Buffalo along with other friends around the world; our hope is to provide 500 students with filled backpacks at our back to school cookout on September 3rd, 2017. 

To help us ensure that this initiative is successful, we are looking for local sponsors to help with food, beverages and supplies. Please consider donating to this worthy event! Should you have any questions or concerns, I can be reached at (716) 544-8840 or [[email protected]]. On behalf of all the students in Buffalo, thank you in advance for your support!

In Unity,

Shelden Gibbs, Owner & CEO
