Sowing Opportunities just concluded its Savers FUNDrive (deadline August 28, 2020).
Details are here.
Sowing Opportunities held a clothing drive and, thanks to the support of many, we collected over 300 large bags totaling over 5,000 lbs. Through the Savers FUNDrive® program, our #nonprofit earned over $1,300 for purchasing #groceries for families in the #village of Chajmaic, #Guatemala during the #pandemic, or to start our #agricultural project. We are seeking a #corporate, or individual, sustaining supporter/s. Details: https://conta.cc/3bvuXGU
Our goal on June 29, 2020 was 100 bags. On August 29, 2020 we delivered over 300 bags to Savers!
We brought the collected bags of clothing to Savers in exchange for a donation to the nonprofit. We have been 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 our 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. The efforts of the employees at U-Haul, 420 Eastern Ave., Malden, MA were equally amazing! Luis, Trey, and Andrew set things up for us and were incredibly efficient and kind, fork-lifting our U-boxes to us when we requested them. They are indeed an essential service in Malden!
We are also very appreciative to Kyle and Enterprise Chelsea Truck Rental for their support and contribution for our clothing fundraiser.
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!
