Local apparel company sells t-shirts to fundraise for Corner Bar

River Babe Threads, a Grand Rapids-based apparel store, is selling t-shirts to raise money for the employees of the Corner Bar in Rockford, which burned down on Aug. 14

The company made the announcement on their Facebook. "We are working with other local businesses to provide relief for these families," the post read. "As many of us know, in a tipped position you sometimes live shift-to-shift working for cash and this loss is devastating to some employees."

Each shirt is being sold for $15.99. The money raised from the t-shirt sales will go toward purchasing gift cards for the families affected by the fire. 

"We think this is the best way we can provide for the immediate needs of groceries and gas," said River Babe Threads.
