HGRM serves about 275 families a month up from 250 of a year ago.
excerpted from HGRM Newsletter
Since most people who come to HGRM look for sets of furniture – for example, a kitchen table with chairs – there are many single chairs left in the warehouse. These chairs are older, a little unusual and frequently made of wood. We had an idea for putting these chairs to use while raising awareness and funds for the organization
and creating art at the same time. We’re calling the event “A Chair to Sit On”. We’re asking local artists to take the chairs and create something wonderful with them: paint them, decorate them, remake them into sculptures – anything they can come with – and then we’ll auction them off to benefit HGRM. Powers Gallery in Acton is helping us recruit artists and is holding the final auction on May 1, 2009 at the Gallery.
We will also hold an online auction through cMarket prior to this and combine it with the onsite auction at Powers Gallery.
