Crafters @ Case 

HOLIDAY SALE 2015

This year the sale was held on two days and resulted in $1,043 in sales and donations within 4 hours.  More than 350,000 stitches were made in creating the more than 180 yarn-craft items offered for sale/donation.  We also featured a new line of crafted items including ceramics and coasters.  We were able to provide support to four causes.  Here is the breakdown:

  • $170 in checks was donated to the SAC Educational Enhancement Fund
  • $900 in cash was donated to the Cleveland Food Bank/WKYC Double Your Dollar Day Telethon, and will provide 7,200 meals!!! 
  • Laura’s Home (City Mission) and St. Malachi each received 5 boxes (79 items) last Thursday, in plenty of time for distribution before Christmas!

Basket Raffle 2015 and Care Alliance Collection

SAC Community Service  presented a  check for $5,000 to US Together  at the December 4th Staff Advisory Council  (SAC) General Meeting.  We could not have  raised  the funds without your help and continued support.   Please enjoy the attached PowerPoint that shows the basket raffle winners. 

This year, all basket raffle proceeds were donated to US Together, a refugee resettlement agency located on the east side of Cleveland and provides help to those who are seeking refuge and are unable to stay in their native country. In addition, they provide support services, employment services, health access, ESL classes and family services.

In addition, we collected socks, gloves, hats, and oral hygiene products for Care Alliance, an organization that has been providing services to the homeless since 1985. View flyer (pdf)
