We are excited to announce our weekly “Cupcake Jones Benefit Day” this Tuesday, June 9, 2009.
On Tuesday, 5% of your purchase will be donated to The Scholarship Fund of Our United Villages. Read below to see how the fund is used. Basically, it helps people attend free or reduced cost workshops at the ReBuilding Center. How cool is that?
The ReBuilding Center offers reuse workshops open to the general public that inspire students to transform discarded building materials into new furniture, household objects, art and sculpture.. Students have access to a variety of woodworking tools and learn valuable tool and construction skills they can apply to projects at home. The ReFind education program supports the mission of Our United Villages to inspire people to see the benefits of turning waste into an asset. Participants are encouraged to see the creative possibility in reusing building materials of all types and varieties..
The ReBuilding Center ’s scholarship fund provides resources that enable individuals or groups to participate in the workshops or classes for free (or at a reduced rate). It is important to The ReBuilding Center that our programs and resources are available and accessible to people of all income levels. The scholarship fund helps make these opportunities open to everyone.
How can you help? You don’t even need to come to the bakery! Call and place an order today for any future date, pay by credit card over the phone, and we’ll donate 5% of your purchase, too!
Or, you can come in and see us! We’d love that!
