Coins for the Community Tops $60,000!
Our August collection of $725.17 benefitted our friends at ArtSeed, whose goal is to bring a lifelong love for creativity, knowledge, and generosity into the lives of young people. That puts our grand total since our spare change collection’s inception at $60,489.12! All thanks to the generosity of our loyal shoppers.
For September, our spare change collection was earmarked to assist Lyon-Martin Health Services, which provides excellent health care to women, lesbians, and transgender people. We’ll report on those numbers next month.
Our October collection will go to Dress for Success and Wardrobe for Opportunity, two organizations whose missions are to provide professional attire and support to disadvantaged women. In addition, we will have a clothing drive during our Ladies’ Night. Click here for further information.
It’s easy to donate to Coins for the Community! Simply drop your spare change in any of our collection jars or choose the “donate” option when you’re checking out at any of our registers. Or bring in that old jar of pennies that’s collecting dust on your dresser.
