Since 2006, The Handmaidens have been raising money for local charities at The Handmade Market. Many of our very talented artists donate their beautiful handmade wares and we assemble them into raffle baskets. Tickets for a chance to win are $3.00 for one ticket or $5.00 for two tickets. 100% of the proceeds go to the charity at each event.
For our November 2018 event we are proud to support Neighbor To Neighbor
Neighbor to Neighbor has been around since 1994. It began as a series of conversations with the 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. This grassroots effort has also expanded to the growing Latino population throughout the greater Raleigh area. Neighbor to Neighbor is rooted in respect and hope, and addresses the holistic needs (physical, intellectual, and spiritual) of those involved. They provide opportunities for youth to excel and grow their God-given gifts and talents.
