At Walker Loden, our delivery policy is simple… we’ll deliver your purchases throughout the state of Connecticut and all we ask in return is that you make a donation to our favorite charity. We help you to determine the amount of your donation based on how many miles we have to travel or the number of stairs that we have to climb. Deliveries to locations close to our shops are given the option to make smaller donations than those further away. But we’re often surprised and pleased to learn that our donors are quite generous and some donate larger amounts than what we’ve requested. The donor makes out a check payable to our charity of choice and we send it. Your delivery donations are tax deductible as all of the charities that we choose are 501(c)(3) organizations. Donations are deductible to the full extent allowable under IRS regulations.
Over the years, our deliveries have benefitted the Diocese of Norwich Outreach to Haiti and Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry at The Episcopal Church of Saint Paul and Saint James in New Haven, CT. We like to spread the love. Currently, our delivery donations are going to CHART – Communities Healing Through Art.
CHART (Community Healing Thru Art) is a non-profit organization providing traumatized and grieving children and families with a safe environment to heal, grow and move beyond their losses through creative arts activities mediated by professional artists and art therapists.
Founded following the Asian tsunami in 2005, CHART has been active in programs following Hurricane Katrina, the devastating earthquake in Haiti, as well as work in India, Sri Lanka, Thailand and South Africa.
