Home Plate: Dinnerware Trade-In
From Sunday, August 1 through Tuesday, August 31, Heath Ceramics Los Angeles will be collecting dinnerware donations in exchange for 25% off any corresponding piece of Heath dinnerware. That means that if you bring in ten of your own dinner plates you will receive a 25% discount on ten new Heath dinner plates. Alternatively, you could bring in six mugs to receive 25% off six new Heath mugs. Get the picture?
The beneficiary of your donations gathered by Heath will be the Skid Row Housing Trust. Not long ago, two friends of this blog, Molly Luetkemeyer and Ruthie Sommers, contributed to Skid Row's recent endeavor, The New Carver Apartments, and now the dinnerware brought to Heath's L. A. location this August will be placed within one of Skid Row's community kitchens or with one of their newly housed disabled individuals. To use Martha's words, it's a good thing.
