All of us at Peppermint Creek Theatre are still buzzing after the "Never Too Far From Home" musical fundraiser that brought PCTC alums together virtually for a musical concert to benefit the important and amazing work that Seam's Fabric in Lansing is doing for our community. In just one month, Seam's has crafted over 12,000 masks to benefit organizations all across Lansing. This is a list of some of the agencies who have benefitted from the cloth masks and hospital gowns Seam's and their volunteers are creating:
o assisted living facilities
o rehab clinics (including Origami Rehab)
o Lansing Police Department
o home healthcare providers
o Community mental health
o homeless shelters
o the tri-county office on aging
o various non-profits such as the Davies Project which transports immune compromised patients to their chemo therapy appointments
o Allen Neighborhood center who plans to pass them out to people who come to their “Bread Basket food distribution
o Sparrow and to McLaren Hospitals staff
So we can't THANK YOU enough for tuning in to our concert this past weekend and especially for donating! We had over 200 people watch the concert on Saturday, and of those viewers, 135 donated to raise a total of $6,030 to support Seam's! Wow! YOU made that happen and we are completed bowled over by your generosity.
We're continuing to collect donations through this Saturday April 25, so if you know someone that wants to contribute, please send them to our website: http://www.peppermintcreek.org/musical-fundraiser.html. And the video of the concert is still live on our Facebook page, so feel free to relive some of your favorite songs from the evening. https://www.facebook.com/peppermintcreek/videos/227076211715535/ We can't wait to present Seam's with a check that shows them just how much their work is appreciated!
At Peppermint Creek, our mission is to address current issues in our society while entertaining, and we are proud to have used this musical concert to address the current issue of COVID-19. We have never felt more proud of the work we do and the community we serve. We hope you feel the same.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
Peppermint Creek Theatre Company
