Indie Craft Fair Benefiting Orlando Union Rescue Mission
For our first event, we chose to help the homeless by selecting Orlando Union Rescue Mission (www.ourm.org) as our inaugural charity. The event was held at Boone High School and featured over 30 vendors from the local community. As always, Helping Handmade donated 100% of the proceeds of the event to OURM through vendor fees and contributions, sponsors, prize drawings, a silent auction, and donations collected from the community.
The event was just in time for the holiday season and all our generous volunteers and contributors helped make the holidays warmer for the homeless served by Orlando Union Rescue Mission!
Our total collected and raised from this event was $1226.17, with an additional $300 in item donations.
