The Sackville Commons is a community space that is set to launch September 2016. We have created a model that can generate operating costs from space rentals, sponsorships & memberships. For us to be financially sustainable AND awesome, though, we’ll need your help! First off, we need a few more members and sponsors. If you’re interested, please look at how we can provide you or your organization will space and/or send us an e-mail if you want to know how you can further support our cause! We’re built on collaborative leadership, so we’re open to all kinds of ways to help & be helped. As a social enterprise, any money we save will go into capacity building events, hiring locals, making our space cooler or sponsoring members & community organizations. So we’ve compiled a wish list! Have too much? Just want to help? Have a spare? If you have *any* of these items, please contact Julia Felthamor drop by 62 & 64 Main Street with them between August 12th & 24th. Please, let us know your name so we can properly thank you for your donations! Any items that are donated that we don’t use in the space will be given to other service organizations or sold to help the space. Thanks for your time, effort & support and please check out our list!
