Classy Living Society
CLASSY LIVING SOCIETY
Through the vision of its Founder, LaShanda Pitts, Classy Living Society was founded in 2013 as a multi-faceted women’s community service organization with a commitment to change the world! With a hands-on approach to volunteerism, CLS partners with charities and nonprofit organizations and provides them with resources to carry out their mission and vision. As a membership-driven private social club, CLS strongly promotes sisterhood and inspires women to connect with other like-minded women, by hosting high-end, exciting and premier events, galas and social functions throughout the year. Customized educational forums and workshops are fashioned for members and member business owners to empower, rejuvenate and promote growth.
Among many local and national recognitions and accolades, CLS has been recognized by Kasim Reed, Mayor of Atlanta, Georgia and is a proud recipient of the President’s Volunteer Service Award issued by President Barack Obama in 2016.

OUR CHARITY PARTNERSHIPS
By joining forces with charities and non-profit organizations across the United States, CLS is able to support the mission and vision of its partner organizations by providing volunteers, fundraising assistance and more. These strategic partnerships serve to bring increased awareness to the causes that CLS and their partner organizations are passionate about – causes that affect local and global communities. In addition, these important alliances will improve community outreach programs and give back campaigns and assist in funding projects and offering additional services to the community that our partners may not otherwise be able to undertake alone. Increased brand recognition will be realized and CLS and its community partners will have the opportunity to share connections and other important resources. If you are a non-profit or charity organization, we welcome the opportunity to connect with you!
OUR “GO GREEN” INITIATIVE
Classy Living Society is committed to saving our planet one step at a time with its “Go Green” initiative-CLS CARES! CLS is proud of our mission to promote sustainability wherein we will provide eco-education, earth-friendly tips and opportunities related to conservation and preservation, ride sharing, rotating volunteer events by county/town/city/area, recycling programs, promoting farmers and gardening for fresh veggies, and more. CLS realizes the key to a greener planet is in all of our hands.
Through Legacy for Change we are excited to engage youth through environmental education for sustainable development. Our mission is to inspire students in the classroom setting with the knowledge, motivations, commitments, and skills to solve and prevent many of the world’s environmental problems. We believe youth must be able to find meaning in the curriculum based on their own experiences and expanded through shared group experiences.
To inspire and develop a community of youth ages 9 to 14 to become successful by cultivating leadership skills through enrichment programs that promote innovation, community service involvement and volunteerism.
We envision a world in which all youth (girls and boys), regardless of race, ethnicity, or socio-economic background are empowered to reach their fullest potential and lead through service by giving back and helping others.
What We Believe… by imparting the following core values we will cultivate a community of service-driven, thoughtful, and forward-thinking leaders.

In a world where humanity is plagued by resource inadequacy, abuse, hunger, war, sickness, lack and fear, it is time for us to address the challenges that impact our global society. SHADE will bolster international character, representing the various colors of our international family coming together for a common cause. SHADE will galvanize the social significance of bringing awareness to issues that desperately require our attention. By wearing SHADE you will be taking a stand – a stand that will ignite the conversation, incite united support and demonstrate that we are the change we’d like to see in the world.
SHADE is designed to bring attention to our words, deeds, voices and call to action. An incredible creation of beauty to highlight who we are, and the cause we represent… a movement that will change the world and mankind… one SHADE at a time.
