2020 Annual Appeal

Clay on Main moves forward during a pandemic…

This year has been an exceptional one. Clay on Main started the year on great footing, offering classes, workshops, Half Moon events, and more just like in years past. Then came news that all non-essential businesses would have to close due to the pandemic. We spent several months ‘closed’, only allowing co-op members the ability to come and get their supplies to work at home. Slowly, as restrictions eased, Clay on Main was able to offer throwing wheels and other supplies to sign out and take home, giving members the ability to create while in quarantine. We are open now on a limited basis, adhering to all guidelines set forth by the state and CDC, carefully allowing members as well as the public to visit the studio and gallery.

Seniors from the Mifflin Berks Encore Center were provided craft kits to keep them busy during the height of quarantine in the Spring- some of these same members benefitted from our previous outreach programs.

We couldn’t have done all this without people like YOU.

 As a non-profit, we run heavily on volunteer participation, as well as the commitment from staff and board members who push to see the vision of Clay on Main come to fruition.  This space has served us well since our beginning, and the life these walls have been given thanks to your contributions is immeasurable. This year, while challenging, has allowed us to reach the community in new and creative ways!

As with any passion, sometimes we need to ask for the support of the community in our endeavors to ensure that we can keep moving forward, and dare we say it, upward with new events and ideas in the future!  This is where YOU can jump in to save the day.

Every year we send out hundreds of Appeal Letters, hoping to appeal to your good senses and graciously receive a donation in return- and it’s that time of year again.  If you received a letter in the mail, or will soon, and have already donated- THANK YOU!  If you don’t currently receive our Appeal Letter and would like to donate, you can donate online (via PayPal- you don’t even need a PayPal account if you still want to donate online, just scroll below to click!), or simply print out the Appeal Letter via THIS LINK (<<<click) and send in your donation the old-fashioned way.  Which ever way you choose, we THANK YOU.

Also, don’t worry if your wallet is feeling a little light- ANY amount is appreciated and is always Tax deductible.  That’s right, your donation helps us AND helps you at tax time!  A win-win!

So here’s to another year at Clay on Main- and whether you choose to donate or not, we hope to see you in the studio!
