Scrapbooks give thanks for helping them help
Dear Editor, On behalf of the Oxford Scrapbookers Facebook Group, we would love to thank the community of Oxford for the wonderful support in helping make our third annual Thanksgiving Saturday “Crafting for Our Community” a successful fundraising event.
On Nov. 30, we welcomed 47 crafters and 10 vendors for a 12-hour day filled with crafting, fellowship, and fundraising. At our event, we raised $2562.86 for Blessings in a Backpack–Oxford, $21.50 for Operation Christmas Child, and collected 191 non-perishable goods for Orion/Oxford FISH.
Since our first event in the Fall of 2017, we raised just over $7,900 for our community!
We also thank Holy Cross Lutheran Church of Oxford, especially Pastor Matt Schuler, for their love and support. For the sixth time, they graciously allowed us to use their facility free of charge, enabling all of the proceeds to go directly to our charities.
We would also like to thank the crafters and community for coming out and spending the day with us! We hope you had a wonderful time! Most importantly, thank you for financially supporting our charities!
Last, but certainly not least, we also want to give a very special and heart-felt thank you to all the local businesses, sponsors, vendors, and individuals who graciously contributed to make this event a success. This event would not be possible without your generous donations.
