Woodland Heights Makers’ Day 2022 helps neighbors in need
The third Woodland Heights Makers’ Day, an arts and crafts festival showcasing handmade goods from local artists and artisans, took place on Saturday, November 5. More than 500 people attended the event, which raised $1,001 to support the Woodland Heights Food Pantry. The Food Pantry provides food and other non-perishable items to neighbors throughout the year.
More than 50 vendors set up tables at Woodland Heights Baptist Church on a beautiful fall morning. The vendors featured a variety of goods, from handmade clothes and accessories to candles, prints, and other home decor, and more. Food trucks were stationed in the church parking lot.
Neighbors organizing Makers’ Day included Vaughn Garland, Kathy Graham, Tom Hammond, Julie Hill, and Wayne Swatlowski. These volunteers worked closely with church staff and vendors to plan event logistics, advertising, fundraising, and secure volunteers. Thanks to the generosity of our vendors, one hundred percent of vendor registration fees supported the fundraising effort. To become involved in next year’s event, please email email@example.com.
