Who We Give To
** Thank you to all our customers in 2022!! At the end of December we were able to send a total of $2353.50 to our two chosen charities! This represents 50% of our total sales (excluding sales tax) from July through December of this year.
For 2022 we have chosen one Vermont food shelf -- the Hardwick Area Food Pantry -- and PAWSitive Pantry as the two organizations to support with our gallery sales. 50% of the sales price of any piece sold this year will go to these two Vermont non-profits.
The Hardwick Area Food Pantry -- with three sites in Hardwick, Albany and Craftsbury -- works to "build community resilience through access to quality food for everyone." It collaborates with other organizations in the area (via NourishHardwick.org) to creatively provide food resources and increase food independence.

PAWSitive Pantry works with the Vermont Foodbank provide pet food to food shelves throughout the state, allowing many pet owners to continue to feed and keep their beloved family members. It provides approximately 4,500 dog and 8,100 cat meals per month to families in Vermont. Click here for their website.
With 2021's contribution of $2024.00 ($1012.00 each to PAWSitive Pantry and Vermont Foodbank), we've donated $4344.50 in the past two years. We get to enjoy creating art and meeting customers through the gallery season, and to be happy about supporting the wider community along the way.
We hope our customers feel great knowing that their purchases at the Gallery have also helped to meet the needs of people and animals in our state!
