“Andy Nettle of the Back of Beyond Bookstore is donating his entire used bookstore stock to WabiSabi to support Moab nonprofits,” according to a news release from WabiSabi.
The group needs book movers and organizers to help with the relocation. Volunteers must be able to lift boxes of books and organize books on the shelves. In exchange, volunteers can earn WabiBucks, according to the news release.
WabiSabi is also seeking volunteers to help with the group’s annual community Thanksgiving dinner. The dinner, provided through the Wabi Winter Meals program, is open to everyone in the community and is free of charge. The event will be held on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 28.
Last year, 100 volunteers prepared and served 500 meals, according to a news release from WabiSabi.
“It is a wonderful opportunity for the individuals, nonprofits and businesses of Moab to unite in sustaining area residents and the community at large, WabiSabi officials said in the news release. “This meal is more than a gesture to help people through lean economic times; it is about creating a sense of community. We invite people of all ages and backgrounds to share in this essential bond of community, gratitude and sharing.”
The organization needs volunteers to help with Thanksgiving meal setup, serving and cleanup. The group cannot accept food donations from individuals because the meal must be prepared in a commercial kitchen. However, monetary donations or gift certificates to local grocery stores are welcomed, according to the news release. Donations may be mailed to WabiSabi, 1030 Bowling Alley Lane, No. 9, Moab, UT 84532.
Anyone interested in volunteering for these WabiSabi events should contact Nara Williams at 435-259-2553 or email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
