TOWARD MAXIMUM INDEPENDENCE PARTNERS WITH ACT II BOUTIQUE TO RAISE FUNDS TO ASSIST INDIVIDUALS WITH INTELLECTUAL AND DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES

LA MESA, Calif., April 12, 2018 – Shop any ACT II boutique April 25 – May 9, 2018 and 15% of the proceeds from your purchase will go to the nonprofit Toward Maximum Independence (TMI) and their CONNECT program which assists individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to socialize, educate and advocate. Since 1981, TMI has been dedicated to assisting children and adults with disabilities such as autism, Down syndrome, and cerebral palsy to live, work and participate in their community.

​ACT II is a family owned and operated ladies resale boutique, which has been in business for more than 35 years. Thirty-five years ago someone in La Mesa was selling a six week old consignment store. Dolores Buller was a stay at home mom for seventeen years when she found herself divorced and in need of a job. Even though she knew nothing about owning a store, let alone knowing the meaning of consignment, she took a huge risk and bought the store. This risk quickly proved itself to be the perfect fit for her family. ACT II is run by Dolores, her daughter Deanne, and, now that her granddaughter, Jessica, is old enough she is starting to learn the business.

ACT II believes in giving back and, throughout the years, they have been very involved with the community. Both Dorothy and Deanne have served on the East County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. In addition to supporting nonprofits, they have donated clothes locally for those less fortunate, as well as in Mexico.

ACT II locations: 8321 & 8243 La Mesa Blvd., La Mesa, CA 91942. Please visit tmi-inc.org for an ACT II flyer which needs to be presented when you shop. Contact Jane Moore at (800) 877-5452, Ext. 315 or janem@tmi-inc.org with any questions.
