Saturday Register Donations Fund Special Projects

Saturday Register Donations Fund Special Projects

When you check out your basket of treasures at one of ACR’s registers, our Reuse Specialists may invite you to make a donation along with your purchase.  These donations go into our general operating fund and support our center operations, programming, staff and more.  We couldn’t do what we do without your financial support, and now we’re giving you a chance to directly support the projects you love most.  

 

Starting this month, we’re making Saturdays special financial donation days here at ACR.  When you donate at our registers on a Saturday, your donation will go toward one of the following special funds:

 

FIRST SATURDAYS ARE FOR THE PEOPLE

Our People Make it Possible:  This is a core value we really take to heart!  We wouldn’t be where we are today without our hard-working staff who make the wheels turn here at ACR.  We’ll be collecting donations on First Saturdays for team-building activities, professional development, staff appreciation and outings that will be chosen by our staff.

 

SECOND SATURDAYS ARE FOR SCHOOLS

Adopt a School Program: Educators pour their hearts and souls into teaching the next generation, and we want to help stretch limited school budgets.  Donations received on the second Saturday of the month will be turned into ACR gift cards that our adopted School of the Month can use to stock their classrooms with school supplies,  art materials, makerspace projects and more. 

 

THIRD SATURDAYS ARE FOR LEARNING

Community-Building Make and Takes:  Our creative reuse center is more than a store.  It’s a vibrant community hub where all kinds of people can come together to explore and create.  Donations received on third Saturdays will fund a facilitator to provide free Make & Take workshops in the center to help inspire visitors to look at creative materials in new ways, offer an opportunity to try something new and help ensure that visits to our creative reuse center are fun and engaging.

 

 

FOURTH SATURDAYS ARE FOR THE LOVE

Workshop Scholarship Fund:  At ACR, we believe that creativity is for everyone.  We prioritize making our creative workshops affordable, but sometimes a little extra love can go a long way.  Make a donation on the fourth Saturdays to contribute to a scholarship fund to help your neighbors take a class at ACR.
