Common Ground has been working on a campaign for Phase Two: The Kitchen in the new building at 310 Locust. We are in need of a total of $25,000 to begin construction on the kitchen in order to open the Common Ground bakery/coffee shop. The front room of the building is currently being used for the community-wide youth group and other random events, but we hope to be open to the public with regular hours very soon. Our first fundraiser dedicated to Phase Two was BINGO Night on Saturday, March 29th. We had a relaxing, yet fun-filled evening playing BINGO, eating popcorn, and winning some wonderful prizes. A special thanks to Paisley Lane Soaps for donating a basket full of goodies!
One of our winners, Bethany, with her prize! We had gift cards for Jimmy John’s, Carmike Cinemas and iTunes. Along with a basket from Paisley Lane Soaps, two homemade pies and an assortment of homemade greeting cards.
Thank you for your continued support and stay tuned on more opportunities to support and join Common Ground. Our most recent total for Phase Two is $6,500! Don’t forget to find us on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest in order to stay updated on all things Common Ground!
