Undeniable Boutique Gives Back During Virginia's Tax Free Weekend

It's that time of year when Uncle Sam lets you shop TAX-FREE all weekend long in Virginia (8/5 - 8/7)! To sweeten the pot, we've marked down tons of spring and summer styles and are putting out new fall transition styles daily!

During this tax-free shopping weekend, Undeniable Boutique is gathering supplies for a Back-to-School Backpack drive organized by Providence Community Center benefiting Second Story in Vienna, VA. For 50 years, Second Story has worked with local youth and families to help them reach their full potential through self-sufficiency and breaking cycles of homelessness, abuse, and poverty.

Here are two ways you can help:

1) Bring any of the following items to UB for donation:
  • Backpacks
  • Lined paper
  • Spiral Notebooks/Composition Books
  • Pens
  • Pencils
  • Pencil pouches/holders
  • Crayons/scissors/glue sticks

2) Shop tax-free in-store or online and we'll donate 10% of weekend sales to purchase additional supplies for the drive. 

Let’s come together as a UB community and help Second Story continue to provide safe havens for youth experiencing homelessness and families in crisis.
