Donor Story: Carolyn Grebel, Co-Owner of Heartland Fragrance

Initially, Carolyn Grebel’s familiarity with Guardian Angel began and ended with the Angel Boutique Resale Shop. It wasn’t until her friendship with Community Service Coordinator Stephanie Betts that she became aware of the full scope of Guardian Angel’s work. Immediately, she was inspired by what she saw.

“When you see people that are really, really passionate about doing good in the community around them, it’s infectious – especially when it’s something you’re passionate about, as well,” Carolyn says. “When my friend, who looks into the faces of people in the community and knows their struggle, says ‘this is a great program,’ I believe her. And I do whatever I can to support it,” she says.  

Carolyn is the co-owner of Heartland Fragrance, an all-natural soap shop located in the Vinita Park area of St. Louis Missouri. The small, all-woman owned and operated company’s philosophy is to offer gentle, high-quality products that are as equally good for the skin as they are delightful to use. As listed in their company’s story, each product is crafted with love and attention. Being a company that operates with such care, it’s no surprise that the partnership between Heartland Fragrance and Guardian Angel should occur. 

 

This year, seniors in Guardian Angel’s Senior Christmas program will receive handcrafted, all-natural soaps from Heartland Fragrance in their gift baskets. Additionally, Carolyn will personally sponsor seven seniors in the program. 

You can tell when people care. That’s what draws you in when it comes to who you want to work with as a business. [Through watching Guardian Angel] work and form partnerships, I’ve realized that there’s a whole world of people in our community that are doing a lot of good,” says Carolyn.
