Editor’s note: Decaturish.com is a proud sponsor of the re:loom project, a local program that addresses homelessness in our communities.
Regular readers of Decaturish know that I am a big supporter of the re:loom program. re:loom helps adults referred through the Decatur-based Initiative for Affordable Housing by providing them with job training and a full time salary, with benefits. I also serve on the Initiative’s board of directors, an unpaid volunteer position.
The employees of re:loom take recycled garments and weave the into items like rugs and handbags. re:loom is competing in a contest sponsored by FedEx called, Small Business, Big Grant. Winners will receive one of 10 small business grants from the company, including a $25,000 grand prize.

re:loom is a valuable program helping to address homelessness and inequality in our community. Grants like these help re:loom continue its mission and provide more opportunities for people in need.
You can also support re:loom by purchasing products made by our weavers at the re:loom store. All proceeds go back into the program.
