CINCINNATI (WKRC) - With so many people suddenly out of a job, the Freestore Foodbank is working overtime to feed the community. Now, a local clothing line wants to pitch-in.
Originalitees in Walnut Hills is not open just yet but that will change once non-essential businesses are allowed to open. Owner Khisha Asubuhi still creating clothing while she waits to open.
Originalitees has been an online store for a decade. Asubuhi is launching t-shirts and totes to give back in partnership with the Freestore Foodbank to help give back to the community.
While she's hurting because she can't open her business, she says there are people who have it so much worse.
"There are all these people who have lost their jobs, who don't have food, and they may feel like they don't have anywhere to go, so I wanted to create something where we can give back in a creative way within our Originalitees platform."
Each t-shirt sale will provide 24 meals, each tote will provide 15 meals.
