What is it like to work for Sara Campbell?  Sara Campbell, CEO and founder of boutique clothing store Sara Campbell Ltd., hosted a charitable night of giving on Giving Tuesday on November 27, opening their doors for Boston Women and Entertainment to shop their Boston store while a percentage of each sale is donated to Cradles to Crayons.

Brooke Phillips, Assistant Buyer and Event Coordinator, talks about her experience working for Sara Campbell, a boutique clothing store in business for over 30 years and everything is made in the USA.

Sleepless Critic:  What does Giving Tuesday mean for Sara Campbell?

Brooke Phillips:  I work for a small company and we wear many hats.  One of the reasons I love working here so much is because of Sara’s philosophy of giving back to women and the local communities.  I think that is very important that women support women, especially nowadays.  We stand out from other retailers because we are not just selling clothing, but reaching out to communities and empowering women in other ways.

SC:  What projects you are currently involved in?

BP:  We partner and give donations for Dress for Success.  A few weeks ago, we had a successful event for Project Hope, a local women’s shelter and raised a lot of money for them.  We opened it up to the public.  That was an opportunity for our customers to shop their favorite designer, but also give back to their local community and women in need, especially around the holidays.  It made everyone feel really good.  Someone from Project Hope spoke about starting out needing Project Hope and ended up working with them.  It was a great feel-good story and an example of the work we do here.

SC:  Do you work on any Performing Arts events with your clothing line?

BP:  We haven’t, but we are open to any new ideas.  We spend a lot of time with local charities that need our help and that are near and dear to Sara’s heart, but we are more than happy to hear suggestions.
