Vermont Business Magazine The Lamoille Housing Partnership (LHP) is partnering with local company Soap Kettle Creations LLC on a product collaboration to benefit the local non-profit’s affordable housing initiatives. Stacey Emerson, owner of Soap Kettle Creations LLC, began her company after years of creating skincare products for her family. Drawing from her background in holistic therapies, Soap Kettle Creations LLC’s products are made with high quality, plant based ingredients. Outside of her company, Emerson advocates for individuals with developmental disabilities, is a mother and wife of individuals with autism, and is earning her graduate degree in psychology.
Emerson learned about Lamoille Housing Partnership and its local affordable housing initiatives through social media. “After following LHP on Instagram, I decided this was an organization I wanted to support,” explains Emerson. Serendipitously, she discovered house shaped soap molds and “knew that a lotion bar in the shape of the house would be perfect for a fundraising collaboration with LHP.”
“We were equal parts surprised and excited when Stacey brought us the collaboration idea – LHP is thrilled about this unique partnership, and appreciative that Soap Kettle Creations LLC chose to support our mission and work in the community!” says LHP public relations manager, Kerrie Lohr.
The Lamoille Housing Partnership lotion bars retail for $3 each, with $2 from each sale donated to the affordable housing non-profit. Emerson is also crafting limited batch Heady Topper soap, through her Vermont Brews & Bubbles soap line, to benefit the housing organization – each retails for $9, with 100% of Heady Topper soap sales proceeds donated to Lamoille Housing Partnership. The lotion and soap bars can be purchased at two upcoming events: July 12th in Stowe at the Alchemist brewery’s “Thursday Night on the Lawn” series, or on August 3rd in Johnson at the “Summer Harvest for Housing,” Lamoille Housing Partnership’s community dinner fundraiser. More information about these events can be found at www.lamoillehousing.org/events.
The Lamoille Housing Partnership develops, rehabilitates, and maintains safe, decent, energy efficient affordable housing through rental, home ownership, and other means to low and moderate income persons and families living within Lamoille County and the Town of Hardwick. The Lamoille Housing Partnership provides such assistance without discrimination or prejudice, using a combination of private and public funding partnerships. Learn more at www.lamoillehousing.org.
