For two sisters who grew up in a home where their resourceful mother invented the rubber band ball and a ziplock bag was ALWAYS used again; where Christmas bows showed up year after year (in great shape!) and where a whole drawer was dedicated to bread ties, this undertaking was a natural fit! Factor in the creative passion of an artist and the patience and energy of a high school history teacher, and it is a match made in heaven.
Thanks to the inspiration and unending generosity of Beth Smoot (co-founder of The Green Chair Project in Raleigh) Jan and Joanna have found their passion: to take the things that we all have been blessed with but can no longer put to good use and put them to good use! Those in our community who are transitioning into sustainable housing can use our stuff, donated and gently used, to set up homes of their own. We gather that stuff and organize it so that folks can come in and pick out the things they love. It is a win-win for everyone!
