It has been 17 years since Yonkers native, Noel D'Allacco, started Operation Prom. The national nonprofit that provides free prom dresses and tuxedos to students in need has been on pause since the beginning of the pandemic. While sitting out two prom seasons, local Westchester County mom Noel decided to start another company, The Grl & Co., an online shop that sells merchandise inspired by the empowered woman! Whether you are a busy mom, boss mom, community activist, educator, influencer, or anything in between, The Grl & Co. has something for you - and a mission to go along with it. There's an organic loose tea line with names like EmpowerMint, EqualiTea, and CommuniTea. A portion of the proceeds will benefit local causes related to women's empowerment, equality, and social issues. Plus, there's a coffee line for moms who run on caffeine! The Coffee Grl label has ethically sourced coffees, as well as coffee body products like scrubs and soaps that reduce the appearance of scars and cellulite. Who said coffee was only for drinking?
Later this summer, The Grl & Co. will launch a hemp and CBD line for women, and, of course that will have a charitable tie-in as D'Allacco is focused on a give-back with all of her products.
