Help out by doing one or more of the following:

  • Make a donation. We need to raise a minimum of $100,000 seed money to open the store. We’ve raised over $70,000 and will be seeking a $50,000 matching grant from the Mennonite Central Committee. Once open, the store is expected to be self-sustaining. Click on the button on the right and make a tax deductible contribution to help us reach our goal!
