Spin Café Update


As our lazy days of Summer are coming to a close, I wanted to keep you updated on the progress we are making towards moving into our new location at 1241 SW Barlow St.  We are awaiting a couple of inspections/permits and then will announce our open house, moving day and opening for guests.  We are now looking at the end of September for an opening date.
In the meantime, as you do your back-to-school and fall shopping, consider adding to your cart some of the items listed below.  We do most of our shopping for food and supplies at Safeway, Walmart and US Foods and Costco in Burlington so if you are visiting any of those stores, please keep SPiN Cafe in mind.  There are great sales going on right now and every donation we receive helps keep our costs down.
If you would like a receipt for your donations, please ask a staff member.
Thank you so very much!
Michele Hines, Executive Director
