Through each Crafters' Exchange event, we select a local nonprofit organization to donate to by giving monetary donations, donated wish list items requested by the nonprofit organization, and leftover items from our consignors after the sale.
Check out what Crafters have done for the community!
We donated to several great charities through our spring 2018 event. Our local charity was The Nourish Food Bank. We collected canned goods and monetary donations from consignors and shoppers that were donated to this organization.
The leftover sale items were donated to the following organizations:
SmART! - Scrap Made Art, in Nashville, TN., creates viable employment for people with intellectual disabilities.
Patrick's Everyday Warriors - strives to bring awareness of the effects of pediatric cancer on families and specifically the siblings, and provides emotional support and helps siblings better communicate with their parents, the medical staff, and even in their own thoughts.
Knit and Crochet Tennessee - provide baby blankets and hats for Nashville General Hospital and over 30 other charitable groups!
Royal Scrapbook Club 4 Busy Women - creates and donates premade scrapbooks every year to the Middle Tennessee Chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Bows & Ballcaps - dedicated to offering love and support to kids fighting cancer, especially those who have lost their hair from their treatments.
Monetary donations and wish list items went to the Tennessee Fisher House, Murfreesboro, TN, Alvin C. York VA Medical Center. Fisher House offers a comforting home environment when a loved one is receiving care in an unfamiliar place during a stressful time of serious illness or injury. No family pays for their stay.
Proceeds from this sale were donated to the American Cancer Society, and the leftover craft items were donated to SmART!, Scrap Made Art, in Nashville, TN.
Monetary donations, wish list items, and leftover craft items were donated to the Rutherford County Domestic Violence Center.
