ELMA, NY-- Local entrepreneur Dan Gigante recently launched "You and Who," a clothing company that will make a one-for-one donation on every item purchased to various shelters and organizations across the country.

"My idea for 'You and Who' is a store that sells great t-shirts that people are interested in wearing, and in the process, helping someone that can't afford their own shirt," said founder Dan Gigante.

The concept has evolved into a more community-based effort, granting artists and graphic designers the opportunity to have their work featured on apparel.

Their video footage was edited and compiled into the television program, OUR TOWN: Clarence. The volunteers also were interviewed about the topics they covered, and their commentary serves as the narration behind the program.

The resulting “video scrapbook” premieres on WNED-TV Sat., Sept. 25 at 6:30 pm.
