Craft for a Cause

Come in any time the Hub is open and do service projects to make the world a better place a little bit at a time. Each month we'll do something different and donate our projects to various organizations.

For the month of January, join us as we make capes for Enchanted Makeovers in the Hub's DIY space.

Limit one service hour per visit. For teens in grades 7-12.
