Sponsor spotlight: Pur Skin Clinic among women entrepreneurs providing meals to at-risk youth

Denise Schwind

Edmonds-based Pur Skin Clinic — in partnership with Gourmondo Co. —  announced Friday the company is among 17 Seattle-area women business leaders providing over 1,000 meals to more than 100 at-risk youth during the next two weeks.

YouthCare is a Seattle-based non-profit working to end youth homelessness in a variety of ways, from providing dinners weekly, to offering on-the-job training and employment opportunities. Realizing a greater need for the organization with Washington state’s shelter-in-place order, Gourmonda founder Alissa Leinonen contacted her friend and fellow entrepreneur Denice Schwind, co-founder of Pur Skin Clinic. Together, they brought together a group of Seattle women entrepreneurs to provide meals and notes of encouragement to youth being cared for “around the clock” in 11 YouthCare locations across Seattle.

“Our mission at Pur Skin is focused around giving back to our local community and we wanted to partner with a company that is providing meals for children in need, during this uncertain time.”  Schwind shared.
