Holiday Maker Workshop Benefits the Sierra College Community Food Closet

Community members will use their creativity to produce handmade holiday gifts to keep and donate to the Sierra College Community Food Closet at the Holiday Maker Workshop at Hacker Lab powered by Sierra College in Rocklin, CA on Friday, December 1. The event will be held from 5 PM to 8 PM at Hacker Lab powered by Sierra College, located at 4415 Granite Dr., Rocklin CA.

Participants will “make one and donate one” in the maker workshops. Students and members have prepped activities so guests can make ornaments, toys, jewelry, stockings, wallets and wreaths. Donations will go to Sierra College Community Food Closet. Children up to age 7 will decorate stockings, paint ornaments and play reindeer games in the supervised Little Elves Creative Corner childcare while older children and adults rotate through Maker Stations of their choice.

The holiday event includes contests for making “outside the box” ginger bread houses and wearing ugly sweaters. Participants are invited to bring pot luck side dishes to supplement hot dogs, cookies, coffee and cocoa being provided.

Entry tickets will be provided with a donation of at least five cans of food per person or $5 (cash accepted or write checks to the Sierra College Foundation). You can RSVP and see lists of suggested items to donate to the Sierra College Community Food Closet at:
