We will be taking appointments for compensated drop-offs on Wednesday, July 8th starting at 10:00 a.m. You MUST speak to a Craft Box staff member, please do not leave a message. If you have had previous appointments recently, we will only take 2 from the same person in a one year period to keep it fair for everyone who’d like to bring items in. Products we buy
Whether you are bringing a donation or a drop-off for compensation, please inspect your boxes for pests that may have taken up residence. If we find evidence of bugs, moths, beetles or mice, we will immediately discard the items (if donated) or put outside and ask that they be picked up (if for compensation) and we will not accept future drop-offs from that person. Thank you for your diligence and understanding.
Please, no dumping or donations left at the building after hours or without our knowledge. Thank you!e.
We have been asked by The Visiting Nurse Association to make walker bags, catheter bag covers and lap blankets for their clients. We have found a walker bag online that works up nicely here and a volunteer has used Simplicity #2822 view B, we can provide the velcro and strapping needed for walker bags. The catheter bag cover is a simple, lined bag with a strap that can be undone, measuring about 13” x 13”. We have a printed pattern, or design your own. We have D rings for the strap available, along with Velcro for the top closure. We also have fabric from our charity shelves, just let us know and we will provide what you need. As for lap blankets, any pattern or fabric is good, as long as it is machine washable. A nice size for someone in a wheel chair is 36 x 42. At this time, we can’t have a work day here in the classroom but would be happy to provide materials for people to sew at home.
Thanks to everyone who donated food to the Christian Action Guild, it was very much appreciated.
