Support the young, fresh and charitable

As is tradition, Boston Mills Ski Resort Open House is this Friday through Sunday. New to the Open House, specifically Sun Valley Sports, is the fresh clothing line: Lumen.

Lumen ModelLumen embodies the rising generation. The owners are young but capable. Their message incorporates generosity and entrepreneurship.

The 15-year-old owners, Jacob Roscoe and David Ross, are donating 30% of every sale to The Cleveland Foodbank. All left-over profits are being put right back into the business in order to continuously create new products.

Ross said the company will be switching charities every few months, so if there is a charity you want to support, Facebook Lumen with the name of the organization, a brief description, and why the extreme sports clothing company should donate 30% of their profits to that organization.

Lumen will also be collecting non-perishable food items for The Cleveland Foodbank, at the Open House, Saturday. For every non-perishable item you donate, you will receive 5% off your Lumen purchase. This offer is available for up to 5 cans. In other words, if you donate 5 cans you will receive 25% off your Lumen order.

Shirts are $14.00 and hoodies are $24.00.

Behind Lumen

While in school one day, the boys stumbled upon the idea of a clothing company.

“Jake came up to me and said ‘hey check this out; I have this cool idea and we could make something out of this.’ He showed me this design, we started talking about it and got really into it. We definitely wanted to move forward with it.” Ross said.

Roscoe and Ross said their immediate goal is getting Lumen’s name out there and showing they can make a good product. They explained, the idea for the logo came from the illuminati. The mystic of the figure drew Roscoe in, and the design grew from there.

Now working from Roscoe’s parents’ garage, Lumen founders put their savings together in order to buy a printing machine and all other needed materials. They collaborate with classmates for ideas and use friends as models.

The first product dropped officially October 7th.
