Did you know that we partner with a different local charity for each and every Handmade Market? Our goal is to introduce (or reintroduce) our awesome guests to equally wonderful organizations doing good in our community. Visitors can make a suggested donation to the charity at the entrance to our event. And in return receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a gift basket filled-to-the-brim with handcrafted goods donated by our generous artists. This year we are already over $2,000 in donated goods! Wouldn’t it be great to win a fabulous gift basket filled with handmade goods while helping out a great organization!
This time we are partnering with Neighbor To Neighbor. Their mission is to cultivate life-giving relationships resulting in communities of hope, justice, and compassion. They have been around for 24 years! It began as a series of conversations with mothers living in public housing in Southeast Raleigh with the goal to bring hope to a hurting community. Today, Neighbor To Neighbor continues to come alongside families in daily partnerships in Southeast Raleigh. They offer SO many programs to meet so many needs.
Enrichment Classes • Academic Mentoring • M.A.D House Basketball • Latino Outreach • Young Life Teen Outreach • Student Employment Program • Computer + Homework Lab • 5E • Community Garden • Mujeres Con Esperanza • Advocacy and Support
Just look at that list. Don’t you want to get involved? Visit here to find out how.
