Whether you are donating unneeded or previously loved materials from home, volunteering with EcoWorks, or donating funds you are an important member of our support team. We couldn’t do it without you!
#Giving Tuesday/ Dec. 1, 2020
Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday
Generosity gives everyone the power to make positive changes in the lives of others. When you choose to support local organizations you insure that those services will remain in our community. Every small act of kindness given or received restores our faith in the basic goodness of humanity. This year we all need a healthy swig of that!
|Why is Ecoworks Creative Reuse so important?|
I overheard one Artist say ” If I didn’t create during this, I’d lose my mind”.
We believe that everyone has great creative potential. Our low cost supplies make the tools to realize that potential more accessible to so many. Cost does not have to be a barrier to try something new.
Teachers should not have to spend so much of their own money to purchase supplies.
Because we rescue tons of unwanted materials artists and teachers require from being tossed in the trash, we are able to reduce our area’s incinerator volume, contributing to cleaner air.
