Whatever we collect we’ll give to Savers in exchange for a donation to the nonprofit. Until we can go to the village to meet with the leaders and do a needs assessment, once this pandemic is past us, we are using these funds to feed hungry families in the remote village of Chajmaic, Guatemala.

Sowing Opportunities is indebted to the capable assistance of Elena Martínez and Valmy González for their help in organizing and LIFTING and transporting (from one storage facility to another), nearly 260 bags of soft goods for our Savers fundraiser! Val did the heavy lifting all day (August 2nd) and Elena was our constant support, providing website assistance, taking professional photos to document our day, and keeping track of the bags. Not an easy feat! If you are looking for a skilled and innovative web designer, check out Elena’s website!
Sowing Opportunities appreciates the generosity and efforts of the employees at U-Haul, 124-126 Eastern Ave., Malden, MA. The manager, Amilcar, provided our nonprofit with three storage bins for one month and, at one point, one of the employees, Devyne, helped me bring 16 heavy bags down the stairs to my bin when the elevator was broken. Kevin tried his best to help me open a lock that was truly jammed and the team provided a new lock so that the process was (almost!) effortless. They are indeed an essential service in Malden!
Sowing Opportunities is incredibly grateful to Mary Selvoski, master tailor and Seamstress to the New Hampshire stars, who must liquidate her stock during this pandemic, and who donated over 125 of 40-gallon bags of clothing for our Savers fundraiser!
