Over the past three weeks we’ve been gearing up for our busy summer season with a fundraising campaign. You may have seen emails from Davin, Bertha, Mark, and Jon, who all told stories about their experience with Binners’ Project and how your donations are going directly toward the programming we offer to binner members of the initiative. If you missed some of these messages, you can catch up by checking out our blog.
We’re excited to say we surpassed our goal and raised a grand total of $4,515.
Thank you so much to all who donated, all those who shared the binners stories through email and social media, and all who followed along eager to hear more from the binners.
We also wanted to take this time to share with you for the first time our Annual Report from 2017, which shows the impact we had last year. Specifically you will see that binners took home a total of $109,200 for their contribution to the project — along with refunds collected from bottles & cans. Importantly, our members learned lifelong professional skills and they report feeling more included in their community.
Without the support and donations from people like you, we would not be able to continue offering programming that strengthens the community and furthers our members’ ability to generate income for themselves.
Thank you for your generosity and continued backing of Binners’ Project.
Anna & Davin
PS We’re always looking for donations year-round to help keep our programs up and running. You can head to binnersproject.org/donate at any time to help continue our impact.
