On Saturday, Robin Chew, an employee of Guaranty Bank in Berthoud, organized a craft and home business sale as a fundraiser for House of Neighborly Service. The event, held in the basement of the bank, was titled “Learn 2 Love” and gave visitors the chance to make a custom valentine courtesy of Jen Frein with “Stamp Up.” Those who brought canned goods received a free, 10- minute back massage.
There were custom jewelry, purses, wallets, home décor and skin products for sale, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting HNS. Chew said she and her friends decided to hold the event as a way to give back to the community. She estimated that $150 worth of canned goods and diapers were donated. “The vendors would like to thank everyone who attended and donated,” said Chew. “It was a small turnout, but see what a difference a couple of people can make.”
