I know fall is right around the corner, but can I brag about our amazing Wellspring summer for just a little bit? Our STARS have been loving being out and about this summer, enjoying classes, re-connecting with old friends back in program and feeling a sense of normalcy again. Joy is felt and smiles abound around here every day.
Before summer ends we will see our art studio back up and running again as we move into a new location on South Wilcox street. We cannot wait to have our STARS back producing their beautiful ceramics. And the best part? You will be able to purchase those products at the Castle Rock Collective. Speaking of which…
The Castle Rock Collective will open September 17th!! We couldn’t be more excited about this new venture between Wellspring & Co. Coffee and World Orphans Market. This unique partnership will allow our STARS to sell art studio and bakery product as well as gain employment at the Collective. Look for your invitation to the Grand Opening to hit your inboxes soon!
We are continuing to celebrate God’s provision for Wellspring through this summer. Once again, the Love in Action Foundation challenged us to raise $100,000 this summer with a matching grant. We had several donors step up and meet this challenge in big ways! Not only did we meet the match, but our donors exceeded the matching amount! We are so grateful to those donors as well as every single person who has supported the work we do here at Wellspring. Thank you for helping us create a community that celebrates adults with special needs so that lives can be transformed.
We hope and pray that your summer has been full of blessings and joy. If you ever need an extra dose of joy, please stop by. Our STARS have plenty to go around and we would love to see you!
