Community Threads tees raise thousands for local non-profits

The high school seniors who started a t-shirt company to raise money for the Ballard Food Bank and Mary’s Place have sold hundreds of tees since they launched earlier this month.

Ballard resident and Seattle Academy senior Max Torres, along with classmate Elena Zytnicki started the charitable t-shirt company Community Threads as part of their senior project for school. The tees feature some of the various Seattle pandemic murals printed on the back.

Torres tells My Ballard that they’ve sold 369 shirts so far, which equals $6,500 in profits, to be split between the Ballard Food Bank and Mary’s Place.

The t-shirt designs feature murals from all over town, including the “Go Easy” mural on Kavu in Ballard, painted by artist Taylor Reed.

There are now six different designs on their website, with the shirts selling for $21.99 each. Visit their website and Instagram page for updates.

That’s so great that they have done this, and already made $6,500 in profits. A win for everyone involved.
