Moorman said Jirani is devoted to being an altruistic part of our community. “Not only do we want you to come through our doors for an excellent cup of coffee, delicious food and house-baked goods, live music and a comfortable, creative atmosphere, but we are also here to give back.”

“Matilda Jane is all about empowering women and girls of all ages,” she says. “I think the brand is a great fit for Empowering Eve and for the Carried to Full Term organization.”
