Participants in a youth scrapbooking class look on as Carmen and Karina Cann demonstrate the use of a die-stamping machine during Saturday's 5th Annual Creat for a Cause at Port McNeill Baptist Church.

No mere scraps raised by crafters

The 5th annual Create for a Cause scrapbooking and papercrafting event brought in large donations of food, toys and cash.

PORT McNEILL—Nearly 50 women and youths turned out Saturday for the 5th annual Create for a Cause scrapbooking and papercrafting event, and brought in large donations of food, toys and cash.

“We did a silent auction and the money from that is still trickling in,” said event founder Lauren Martineau. “But it will definitely be over $1,000.”

Create for a Cause is jointly hosted by the Port Hardy and Port McNeill Baptist churches, and was held this year in Port McNeill for the first time.

Martineau said some past participants from Port Hardy were not able to attend, but those absences were more than made up for by new crafters who attended for the first time.

There were 47 of us, which is about what we had in past. Did silent auction and money is trickling in; definitely be over $1,000.

This was the first time we’ve done it in Port McNeill. Always co-hosted it.

Had a bunch of our regular people couldn’t make it, but still ended up. Sold soup and buns. some of teachers donated cost of materials
