On Saturday, the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts (MVCA) celebrated Spring with solution sets provided by Thirty-one Gifts. The 401 Gallery was transformed with samples of the exclusive merchandise, which allowed people to purchase gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduations, and Weddings all while supporting the programs offered by the Center.

Thirty-One Gifts was founded in 2003 with one simple goal in mind – to help women by giving them the opportunity to run their own successful business.

Donnalyn Shuster said, “I’m here supporting the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts, not just as an instructor and member, but I’m donating my commission from sales today to the art center for the greater good.”

“It’s an extremely supportive company with a lot of give-back. It’s a faith-based organization with a great work environment. I’ve only been with them for six months and I’ve gotten a sales club award. If somebody knows about Thirty-one, they are usually all over it,” she said.

Shuster said that there’s something for everyone from the company. “Kids, travel, home, and fun.”

Over the past 15 years, Thirty-one Gifts sales Consultants have held over 6 million parties. Along the way, they’ve also been blessed to give back to organizations that share their mission in North America and around the world.
