We are BEE-yond thrilled to announce that our campaign to help Turningpoint through Christiansen Creative and TheBoxEffect.com was a major success! So far, we've filled 19 BOXES (and counting) of essential items for this wonderful and deserving organization. We want to thank the dozens of donors who took the time to come to the Plantables warehouse this past week to drop off their items. The Christmas spirit is alive and well in Hudson, Wisconsin!
The Plantables crew was absolutely delighted by a surprise visit from the Singing Veterinarians, a.k.a. the staff at Lakeland Veterinary Hospital in Afton. Drs. Blaire Johnson and Jeanie Drury, Carolyn, Courtney, Carrie, and Teresa sang several Christmas carols, including Joy to the World and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. Even their Yorkie, Pixel, joined in. What a lovely holiday surprise – they are the best!
Our campaign to help Christiansen Creative and TheBoxEffect.com collect supplies for Turningpoint for Victims of Domestic and Sexual Violence started today. We are so grateful to the folks that came down to the Plantables warehouse (in downtown Hudson) to donate household items for this deserving organization.
If you can, please take the time to bring in your donation to our warehouse between 9:30-2:00 Tuesday through Thursday this week. Items needed to fill a box are: laundry detergent, household cleaner, 6-roll pack of toilet paper, two washcloths, two bath towels. And remember, all donations will earn a free Plantables card! Call Jim with any questions, 651-216-7294.
Many thanks to Dr. Kim Mogen of the University of Wisconsin–River Falls Biology Department, for using our Bee Bombs as the focus of the research projects in her Botany class this semester. The students tested optimal conditions for seed germination and plant growth. Some of our Plantables volunteers and workers were able to attend the students' presentations on their last day of class. The students did an amazing job! What a great example of life long learning, an important part of the Plantables mission!
Hey, Hudson Area Friends - in the spirit of the season, Plantables has accepted the challenge by Christiansen Creative and The Box Effect to fill several boxes of essential household items for the organization, Turningpoint for Victims of Domestic and Sexual Violence, in River Falls, Wisconsin. The items needed are: laundry detergent, household cleaner, small washcloths, bath towels, and six-packs of toilet paper.
Please come down to our warehouse in Hudson next week (Monday-Thursday, 9:30-2:00) and drop off one, some, or all of the needed items. As an extra incentive, Plantables will give you a FREE Plantables card for any donation. So what do you say, Hudson Friends - are you up for BEE-ing a Santa's Helper? Hope to see you next week! Call Jim with any questions, (651) 216-7294.
Our worker bees and volunteers (or elves as we call them this time of year) have been working really hard to make Plantables gifts and cards for your holiday giving. You'll get a chance to purchase these items at this Saturday's Hudson High School Holiday Boutique and Craft Sale and, as always, at the Purple Tree in downtown Hudson, at our warehouse, or our online store.
Follow our progress as we get this venture up and running.
