At a very young age, Sheila's parents taught her to be grateful and to always give back. In 2015 Sheila launched the #BUYateeGIVEonefree campaign with the company's logo tee shirts. When you purchase a SHEILA FRANK logo tee, we will donate to someone in need. Local organization Bethesda Mission agreed to accept the tee shirt donations for this on going project. Sheila has donated over 100 plain tee shirts to Bethesda Mission and plans to continue this project. Bethesda Mission has been providing hope and healing to hurting and homeless people in the Greater Harrisburg area since 1914.
