Country Store Donations

Your homemade contributions are needed!

The Arborfest Country Store is a showcase for the creativity and DIY spirit of the entire Arbor community -- with students, alumni, family, faculty and staff contributing all manner of things handmade and homegrown. The money we raise at the Store helps pay for things like new Senior science tables, emergency preparedness supplies, and visits from guest authors.

Please consider donating or making something that we can sell at the Store. Not sure what to make? Here are some fun and easy ideas. Last year's contributions included emoji pillows, handmade jewelry, wooden cutting boards and many wonderful food items (jam, breads, sauces!). 

Still not sure what to donate? The Store is staffed entirely by volunteers. Among the tasks that require helping hands are setup, pricing, cashiering, and teardown. Most of the volunteer work begins the day before Arborfest and continues into the Sunday of that weekend.

Let us know what you plan to make or sign up to volunteer!

Please deliver your items to Music East by Wednesday, October 4 (special arrangements can be made for more perishable items).

Question or ideas? Contact Heidi (heidi.hardman@gmail.com) or Nicole Fischer (nicole@seedlingdesign.com).
