POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

A Heartland business is starting a monthly initiative to show its appreciation for people who give back to the community.

They’re using a specially designed t-shirt to show thanks for one deserving group.

“As a teacher it makes me feel super appreciated, that they would go out of their way to make 700-800 shirts for all of us," Katie Warren, a fourth grade teacher at the Poplar Bluff R-1 School District said.

Warren said having a local business go out of their way isn’t going unnoticed.

“It is nice to be recognized for the extra work and the hard work that we put in, cause as a first-year teacher, I’m really realizing how hard teachers work,” she said.

Cat Sharp is the project manager at Stand Still Ink. The business is kicking off a project called the "Do Good Campaign."

“We wanted to make the biggest change we possibly can," Sharp said.

Sharp said they wanted to show appreciation by giving t-shirts to people who make a difference in the community.

“There are teachers that are taking their work home, and administrators that are answering calls at crazy hours, and it’s the least that we can do for them for everything that they do for us, for the community,” Sharp said.

Warren said this business made her Friday t-shirt days a lot better.

“They didn’t need anything from us in return," Warren said. "They didn’t want anything. It was only to give to us and it wasn’t even for advertising, it was just to give to us, which makes us feel good.”

Sharp said the feeling she gets when she gives to others makes her want to continue to give.

“We’re going to keep doing this as long as we can find partners and people that are still doing great things for the community we still have some great ideas it just feels too good to not do this," she said.

If you want to recognize a group in the poplar bluff community that goes above and beyond for others Stand Still Ink wants to hear from you.

Ozark Federal Credit Union joined the business to help them with the large project.

Right now, the business focuses on the Poplar Bluff area and wants to recognize its hometown, but hopes to outreach to other cities like Jonesboro and Cape Girardeau.

If you have a group that would be worth recognizing you can call the shop at 573-776-8116
