By liking us, clicking "like" on our posts, and "sharing" our posts, you help build the word about saving the Penland Post Office and General Store building. The more people know that we are raising money and restoring the structure, the more support we can get and the sooner the building will be done! We can't do it without the support of people like you!
GIVE A DONATION
Every donation will go a long way towards restoring our building. Please donate as generously as you can!
Occasionally, we need volunteers to help out. In May, 2016, we will need more folks to help dig out a trench along the north wall. The dirt can be taken to gardens as it is fabulous compostable dirt.
As well, we will be scraping and repainting the Office that sits above the PO and General Store. This project will be taking place in June, 2016.
We are planning more fundraising projects:
1) a crowd funding campaign will be released around May 15, 2016 via generosity.com.
2) creating be a way for people to leave a legacy, either as a brick, or with their name on a plaque, or other such medium.
3) we are also planning an online auction with objects ranging from gift certificates to objects of art.
4) we are thinking of doing a river float contest on the Toe River.
