PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwired - December 19, 2016) - DELSEY, the iconic French luggage brand known for seventy years of timeless quality and audacious design, made Giving Tuesday a success, donating to local charities in Maryland.
DELSEY was founded in Paris seventy years ago, by Emile DELahaye and Andrew and Walter SEYnhaeve. Over thirty years ago, DELSEY made the milestone decision to open an office in the U.S. and chose the strategic location of Baltimore for these operations.
Dedicated to making travel seamless, DELSEY understands that life does not always take the direction one intends. This year, DELSEY partnered with American travelers to contribute to Giving Tuesday. DELSEY donated one suitcase for every piece purchased on November 29th to one of two local charities in the Baltimore region:
- House of Ruth, provides services to victims of intimate partner violence,
- The Light House, a homeless prevention support center.
Luggage is often a symbol of a new beginning, and by donating DELSEY suitcases to these compassionate organizations, DELSEY hopes to contribute to that. The luggage will help people who arrive at either center transport and store items as they transition to a more permanent location.
THE LIGHT HOUSE
For over 25 years our mission has been to help rebuild lives with compassion by providing shelter and services to prevent homelessness and empower people as they transition toward employment, housing and self sufﬁciency. Our vision is to serve as a national model for how a community cares for its homeless. We strive to break the cycle of homelessness by providing a place of belonging, life-changing programs and a broad continuum of support for people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
