Treetops Collective started with the idea of helping refugees in the West Michigan community.

Their mission is to "connect refugee women with people and opportunities in their new community so they can flourish for generations to come -- standing tall and impacting others."

Treetops Collective opened a retail space on South Division in Grand Rapids as a space where, according to organizers, refugees can utilize their skills, gifts, and ambitions. Shoppers can purchase an assortment of hand-made goods from children's clothing to pottery.

For more on their mission, visit their website or stop by their shop during the holiday shopping season or anytime at 906 Division Ave. S., Grand Rapids.
