2019 marked the first year Spare Parts participated in The Big Give. Since becoming a non-profit organization in June 2018 this was our first year being eligible to participate in the annual giving day.
Spare Parts received $2,438 in donations from 31 donors during The Big Give efforts held on March 28. We went live on social media, e-mailed our supporters, and for one-day only brought back our materials giveaway. Although our team is small we’re a mighty bunch who want to “advance reuse and sustainability through creativity and the arts.”
“I think it was a terrific effort.”Laura Carter, President, Friends of Spare Parts Board of Directors.
With the donations received we’ll be able to sustain our programming, as well as put towards our goal to open a full-time reuse center.
