The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
To promote resource conservation, creativity, education and community engagement through material reuse, art, waste reduction, recycling, composting and zero waste strategies.
Creative Reuse Center; we sell low cost art supplies to support teachers, artists and other creatives. Materials are industrial scrap and business surplus in addition to donations from individuals. 2. reBoutique gift shop; consign with CT based artists that use reclaimed materials in their work. 3. reCraft; we provide workshops and classes as well as are planning to set up a DIY space. We also offer workshops on how to use the scrap, but moving to a more appropriate space will allow us to provide more workshops, provide DIY maker space, offer environmental classes and house a reBoutique gift shop that showcases upcycled and repurposed goods made by CT artisans.
News Flash: We have moved to 89 State Street, North Haven. Just want to let you know that there are no buses that run to out new store. We''ve packed everything up at the store and most of our materials are now in the new store. Our challenge is going to be unpacking and setting up our new store. We're not quite ready for new volunteers at this time. However, by mid August we will be thrilled to have lots more hands! If you're interested you can still send us an email.
