Buy your holiday gifts and feel good knowing your money is going to great organizations and local artists around the city.
The event is open to the public and we are asking for a $10 donation! RX Winter Lumberland will include a raffle, music, local food vendors, beverages from local breweries as well as wares from local artists and vendors. We will also offer a Scraptacular workshop to make wreaths out of repurposed materials just in time for the holidays!
Proceeds from the goods sold will benefit the local makers themselves, and donations will benefit the Rebuilding Exchange’s job training program. The Rebuilding Exchange’s mission is to create a market for reclaimed building materials. We do this by diverting materials from landfills and making them accessible for reuse through a retail warehouse open to the public, by promoting sustainable deconstruction practices, housing a job training program for those with barriers to employment, and by providing education through workshops and events. Since our inception, we have diverted over millions of pounds of material from the landfill and trained over 103 individuals in deconstruction, carpentry, and warehousing.
