Festivities are coming! We’re bringing a line up of craft workshops, celebrations, and special member events this December. Also with the holiday this week, our programs will run on a special schedule, with the Farmers’ Market, Recycling and Store closed to observe Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 28.
We’re excited to share these events to celebrate the season, and find ways to waste less and support local economies in holiday giving:
- Friday, November 29 – Tuesday, December 24: Winter Coat Drive We’re collecting gently used coats and jackets to donate to Building Opportunities for Self Sufficiency (BOSS). They will distribute to their homeless and recently homeless clients, to stay warm this winter. Sort through your closets and bring them during our open hours, Tuesday – Sunday, 11 AM – 6 PM.
