It’s that time of year again! Time for the 12 oz. Studios annual holiday toy drive!
With the holiday season approaching rapidly we ask that you please help those less fortunate in our area have a very, merry Christmas. We will be taking gift donations at both 12 oz. Studios shops from now until Thursday, December 14th. From there all donations will be sent to the Center for Family Services that will make sure kids and families in our area have the best Christmas ever. And, to show our appreciation for your generosity, with every new, unwrapped item you donate you’ll receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a $50 or $100 gift certificate! The more items you bring the more chances you have to win! Not sure what to donate? Here’s a handy list of what the Center for Family Services is looking for:
- New winter coats (newborn – adult 3XL)
- Hoodies (youth large – adult 3XL)
- Pajamas (newborn – adult 3XL)
- Clothing (youth large – adult 3XL)
- Gift cards (Best Buy, Target, Old Navy, Walmart, ShopRite, Footlocker)
- Movie theater passes (AMC preferred)
- Books (newborn – young adult)
- Educational toys
- Sports Equipment (NFL footballs, NBA basketballs)
- Earphones & earbuds
- Toiletry cases filled with bath & body products (Dove, Axe, and Suave brands)
- Twin Sheets
- Bath Towels
It feels good to give. It also feels good to get something in return. We thank you all for your support and continued generosity every holiday season. Merry Christmas and happy holidays from 12 oz. Studios!
We can’t begin to thank everyone enough who donated various items to help the citizens of Puerto Rico recover from Hurricane Maria. Our own Alex Feliciano and Jose Bolorin where particularly moved, both being of Puerto Rican descent and frequent visitors to the island where their friends and family still reside. Because of you we where able to donate a whopping 5, packed to the brim, car loads to the Puerto Rican Civic Association located in Hammonton, NJ. From there all of the goods donated will be loaded onto a trailer and sent to the island. These donations will make a meaningful impact in the day to day life of those working to rebuild their homes and ultimately their and their community’s lives.
It’s going to be a long road to recovery so we’ll be watching as to where 12 oz. Studios can help next (stay tuned). We can’t say this enough: we have the best clients anyone could ask for. You always deliver whenever need be and for that we are eternally grateful. And, a special thank you to the folks at the Puerto Rican Civic Association in Hammonton, NJ for organizing this entire event and coordinating efforts with the island.
Ladies and gentleman, please join us in welcoming David Carreras to 12 oz. Studios Deptford, NJ shop! David got his start in tattooing in 2011 in Clearwater, FL. His style lends itself more towards neo-traditional but he’s down for whatever you can throw at him! You can call our Deptford shop (856-845-2222) or email him at email@example.com to schedule an appointment or stop by as a walk-in. Welcome aboard David!
Ladies and gentlemen, we are sad to announce that Kevin Soto from our Deptford shop will be leaving 12 oz. Studios after Thursday, August 10th. Kevin will be joining the ranks of a brand new shop in Philadelphia, PA called Ahava Tattoo Studio. Kevin brought a vibrancy and new approach to black and grey realism tattoos that most certainly pushed and improved the skills of our other artists. We are going to miss the sports debates and good-natured ribbing that Kevin brought to the shop. Kevin, we wish you nothing but the best of luck and are excited for you as you take your next step in your journey of tattooing!
After August 10th Kevin Soto will be at:
Ahava Tattoo Studio
2463 Grant Ave.
Philadelphia, PA 19116
