Crafting a Better World

A celebration at the A.C. Moore store in Deptford, New Jersey, for this year’s check presentation!You know how much I love crafting from my April blog post, when I talked about A.C. Moore’s register donation program and Make n’ Take crafting event. Well, the event was a huge hit! A.C. Moore educated thousands of customers about autism and the importance of early intervention.

Yesterday, my colleagues Sara and Katy joined Pepe Piperno, president and owner of A.C. Moore with Robin Beam, Jacquie Panto and the top 10 fundraising stores at the A.C. Moore store in Deptford, New Jersey, for this year’s check presentation. And Easter Seals New Jersey’s CEO Brian Fitzgerald and VP Helen Drobnis were there with Easter Seals consumers as well. They loved thanking store managers and team members who made this April’s campaign a success. A.C. Moore stores — managers, employees and their customers — raised an impressive $150,000 for Easter Seals to use to deliver local services for kids with autism and other disabilities.

The most amazing part was that A.C.Moore staff are already thinking about next year and have lots of ideas brewing on how to make the campaign an even bigger success!

Since A.C. Moore launched this campaign as part of its Crafting a Better World program in 2010, customers and store team members have raised nearly $500,000 to support Easter Seals families! Thanks to A.C. Moore, we will be able to help more families and make the first five years of life count for kids with autism and other disabilities.
