Yayy! Just a couple of days ago Mrs. Bensfield and I discovered that our Crochet Coral Reef project has received full funding on DonorsChoose.org! We had several generous donors to thank in the end, but the final amount was completed thanks to U.S. Cellular- Bolingbrook Customer Care Center in Bolingbrook, IL. We raised $389 total!
We're very excited about having full funding, and our sets of new crochet hooks and yarn will complete a collection of supplies already started, thanks to parents, staff, and other special friends who have separately donated supplies to us.
Keep an eye out, as I will be posting update photos soon of the project on display. We also have plans to set up a demonstration table at our end-of-year art show for visitors to do some crochet work with us. The end-of-year art show will be in conjunction with our Sandburg 60th birthday celebration this year... more details to come on that soon!
Thanks to all of our supporters! We're so excited to work on our reef!
