BUILDING THE FUTURE THROUGH
The Next Era. Presented by Vans.
LMNH teams up with Vans for a one-of-a-kind opportunity. During this 6-month program, freshman sophomores and junior students will be exposed to careers including, but not limited to, business logistics, design, finance, marketing, videography, branding, and much more. Sessions are taught by VANS staff, local community members, and accomplished professionals within the fashion industry.
The Neighborhood is a series of community-focused events designed to put resources into the hands of the very people who live in it. This hands-on initiative not only serves our community with tangible services, but the website also serves as a directory of black or minority owned small businesses in Central Ohio.
A STRONGER NETWORK THROUGH SNEAKERS
Community Releases by Sole Classics.
Community Releases allow Sole Classics to leverage their platform and highly coveted sneaker releases into benefitting local small businesses and non-profit organizations. Throughout the year Sole Classics partners with community entities for a sneaker release. Patrons are encouraged to do things like donate to a non-profit, join LMNH for a neighborhood cleanup, or gran a bite from a local sandwich shop in order for a better chance to purchase the item. It is a win-win for everyone.
