Church in the Wild, an eco-spiritual community located in Windsor, is embarking on a mission to establish a Creative ReUse Center that will be accessible to everyone in and around Broome County.

Mission to Establish a Creative ReUse Center

This Creative ReUse Center will serve as a haven for salvaging usable materials from landfills and transforming them into new creations through the hands of artists, crafters, teachers, homeschoolers, and anyone looking to upcycling and thrift.

Fostering Creativity and Sustainability

This initiative's vision is to create a vibrant space for community engagement and artistic expression. The Creative ReUse Center hopes to provide an avenue for individuals to unleash their creativity, offering open creative hours and ample room for classes, workshops, and parties. Through this project, Church in the Wild is advocating for sustainable practices and fostering a culture of collaboration and enrichment.

Accepting Donations for Sustainable Cause

In a recent update on social media, Church in the Wild announced that they are now accepting donations of reusable arts and crafts materials, thanks to the support of the Broome County Council of Churches. The Council has generously provided Church in the Wild with space within their building to store supplies temporarily, allowing the community to come together and contribute towards this sustainable cause.

Community Collection Event

On Saturday, June 22, Church in the Wild will set up a collection point at the Broome County Council of Churches from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., inviting members of the public to donate various items such as totes, plastic bins, wooden totes, or any large containers that can hold materials. The community is encouraged to go through their homes and consider giving away art supplies, craft materials, jars, paper, yarn, fabric, and other items that have been gathering dust but could find new life in the hands of creative individuals.

Enhancing Creative Mediums

The list of donations sought spans a wide range of creative mediums, including fine arts supplies like paints, brushes, and canvases, knitting and crochet materials, embroidery and sewing tools, jewelry-making supplies, scrapbooking essentials, party decorations, office supplies, and general craft items. Additionally, reusable household items such as corks, jars, caps, and more are also welcomed. Residents are requested to ensure that donated items are clean, free from labels, and not damaged by mildew.

Support the Cause

For those unable to donate in person, Church in the Wild offers an alternative way to support their cause by making an online donation through their platform here or by sending a check to Church in the Wild at PO Box 289, Windsor, NY 13865.
