Reaping Nature Educational Outreach Foundation and Sawnee Woman’s Club have enjoyed a special partnership over the last few years. Here’s an update on current projects:
- Reusable Bags - In partnership with the Sawnee Woman’s Club (I proudly chair their Conservation Department), and with funds through a grant from Sawnee EMC’s Operation Round Up, we’re purchasing 1,000 reusable bags. The bags will be handed out at various events over the next year. To date, we have handed out over 2,000 reusable bags.
- Senior Center Crafts – Sawnee Woman’s Club and Reaping Nature are returning to the Charles Place Senior Center with reuse crafts for seniors. We’ll be making a wine cork pumpkin this October! My grandmother loved this senior center, and it’s an honor to return their to work, laugh, and be reuse crafty with her friends.
- Bags of Books/Read Across America – Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to donate gently used or new books for grades Kindergarten to 5th for our Read Across America bags of books, another partnership with the Sawnee Woman’s Club (because together we can do more!). We hope to bring bags of books back to children at Chestatee Elementary in March. Last year we delivered 147 bag containing three books each. This year’s goal is 200 bags with three books each!
