Support Area 515 This Giving Tuesday

Tomorrow, November 27th, is Giving Tuesday. This is a national movement for individuals to show their support for important organizations. Area 515 would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to participate during this year’s season of charity and giving.

As a place of unbridled creativity and collaborative learning, we believe the Des Moines Maker Space is a wonderful candidate for your consideration. During the 8 years we’ve been active, Area 515 has seen the creation of active craft and hobby groups, classes and workshops, artist residencies, and internship opportunities. We’ve participated in a number of larger community events with our members’ projects and been able to support several teachers and non-profits in their work with our making knowledge.

Small businesses have been launched here. College majors have been inspired here. Joy and art has been made here. We hope you can find it in your heart to help us expand our work. We want to touch more lives and grow the range of tools and services we provide for Des Moines area makers, builders, artists, and dreamers.

If you would like to contribute you can easily support us with no extra cost to you by using Amazon Smile the next time you make a purchase online.

You can also directly donate on our donation page.

We’d also be happy to see you! Our next workshop is Snow Day on December 15th from 1-5pm. Bring the whole family to create festive snow-themed decorations for the holiday season and enjoy cookies, cocoa, and crafts.
