What's Going On?
Part of the proceeds from our Give Together Event held in April 2019 are going to Stella's Circle for their Clean Start Program. Clean Start is a commercial cleaning business that operates as a Social Enterprise. They help people with barriers to employment get back into the workforce. This $15,000 will be used to purchase commercial washer and dryers to expand their services; enabling them to wash the towels and sheets to clean Airbnbs.
A big Thank You to all our Sponsors and guests who attended our Annual Give Together Event as well as those that donated auction items. You made this donation possible.

Ever wonder where our containers filled with materials end up? This is the school library in Tshelanyemba, Zimbabwe. The librarian sent this photo to show how they’re using the desks, chairs, filing cabinets and books that were on the last container! Many thanks to everyone involved!‬ Whether donors, sorters, packers or fundraisers you have all made a huge impact on the lives of the people in this community.
