Where to Donate Your Craft Supplies
For one, you won’t have the safety concerns that come with meeting a stranger for a sale. For another, you will also probably feel good that a friend will be able to make good use of your supplies. Facebook Marketplace is also another good starting point. Since anything you list on Facebook Marketplace is public and automatically posted on your profile, your personal social network will be notified. If friends aren’t interested, hundreds of local buyers nearby will still be able to find your "for sale" listings.

I also make a lot of wire crochet necklaces usingSoft Flex Craft Wire. There are several videos on-line with instructions on this beading technique. I mainly use26 gauge or24 gauge wire for these designs. Sometimes I use22 gauge but it is harder to work with when you first begin.
Chris Wagner, is a dynamo, and works tirelessly to get the community involved in SJNC. She and her staff have recruited doctors, nurses, dentists, massage therapists, mental health counselors to volunteer some of their time to this Center. In addition, medical residents from the famous University of Rochester/Strong Memorial Hospital also donate their time attending to the Center’s clients.

This year, my sister-in- law was trying to come up with a fund raiser for our family team. We came up with the idea to do bracelets for the participants and they would add a bead for every lap of the track they made. As you can see I have ordered a bunch of your add a beads.
Currently Kids Unlimited is serving 1,500 children, youth and their families to remove barriers that impede learning at grade level which is predictive of dropping out of school. Over 50% of the service population is of Hispanic/Latino ethnicity. Someone brought in some jewelry supplies a while back and started the Bead Bag. Being the biggest bead freak volunteering at the shelter, I took it over. The Bead Cart, as it’s now known (it long ago outgrew the bag, then bags – have I mentioned that I am a bead freak?) has everything that the residents need to make jewelry. Having something fun to do is a treasure for someone who has been through what our residents have endured.
