Today, a unique project bringing together conservation, the arts and assistance for single mothers was announced during an 11 a.m. press conference at the office of Maia Moms, 2120 Noisette Blvd. suite 123, North Charleston, SC. The press event also announced a donation crowdfunding project to raise the seed money for this project.
The Creative Flow Reuse Center is being established to take used or recycled materials, turn them into creative pieces of art, home decorations or other useful items, sell these items to the public and give the profit to Maia Moms. Maia Moms, a 501c3, offers support and assistance to single mothers by promoting self-sustainability through education and job training. Two out of five single mothers are poor, triple the poverty rate for the rest of the population. In South Carolina 72 percent of poor children live with a single parent.
“Creative reuse centers around the country have proven to be a valuable resource for education, revenue for artists, assistance to needy families and growing the small business community all while keeping more waste out of the landfill,” said Allison Herrin, Executive Director of Maia Moms.
This is the third project on the new SCcrowdfund.com, a statewide portal for small businesses, entrepreneurs and nonprofits to access capital through donations or private investment.
