Thanks to funds received from Council Members Inez Dickens and Robert Jackson, and donations from friends and supporters like you, our immediate emergency has been forestalled. However, we are not quite out of the woods yet. Can you help us to reach our goal and send a donation today?
Harlem Textile Works (HTW) a nonprofit organization with offices at 143rd Street and Amsterdam Avenue. Since its inception, Harlem Textile Works has successfully trained under-served African American and Latino youth in silkscreen printing techniques and art and textile design free of charge, while nurturing and cultivating within them an entrepreneurial spirit.
Our interns have graduated from institutions of higher education, secured positions in the design, fashion, and advertising industries, or pursued careers at museums and other cultural entities. HTW has recently expanded its fabric design and printing education programs to serve adults, both artists as well as those interested in learning more about the design field.
Like other businesses and institutions, non-profit organizations have been severely affected by the current economic downturn. For HTW, past funders have declined or delayed funding and new grants have been much more difficult to secure. Because of these changes, HTW needs to raise funds immediately to be able to cover ongoing operating expenses.
I would really appreciate it if you would consider making a donation of $100 by August 31st to HTW by sending a check or money order to HTW, P.O. Box 1090, College Station, New York, New York 10030 or online by going to http://www.harlemtextileworks.org/donate.html. Whatever you can give will be appreciated
Your tax deductible donation will help HTW continue to provide important service to area youth and adults. Tna k you for your support.
