Lumina Station merchants are generous when it comes to giving back throughout the year, but this year for the first time they are having a Day of Giving event on November 2nd.

When you shop at some of your favorite Lumina Station stores on November 2nd proceeds from your purchase will go towards an organization of that shop’s choice.

Each shop participating has chosen a different organization to work with based on previous experiences of working with that organization, knowing someone who has been impacted by that organization, or just because they like that organization and what it stands for.

A few of the organizations some of the merchants have chosen to give back to are Lower Cape Fear Hospice, the USO, and NC Nourish.

Ziabird at Lumina has chosen to give back to Lower Cape Fear Hospice. Ziabird owner Lynn Manock says she chose them because she has had family members go through Lower Cape Fear Hospice.

“They’re an organization that is available to everyone and just provides the highest quality of care,” Manock said.

Island Passage is giving back to Nourish NC. Kristyn Prentice, owner of Island Passage, said they worked with Nourish NC after Hurricane Florence and fell in love with what they do for the community.

“In New Hanover County, one in four children are hungry,” Prentice said. “And we just think that’s too many. So NC Nourish partners with New Hanover County Schools and they make sure that the kids that need food, that are food insecure, it gets into their backpacks and it gets home with them. And we just want to encourage that they have all the needs that they need to help those kids.

J. McLaughlin has chosen to give back to the USO. J. McLaughlin store manager Ashley Baker says they chose the USO because some of the store’s clients work with the USO. She has also had family members in the in the Air Force.

“My grandfather was in the Air Force so this was just a little way that myself and my coworkers can help give back,” Baker said.

Other stores in Lumina Station participating in the Day of Giving are Airlie Moon, Monkee’s of Wilmington, and Spartina 449.
