In 2019, three companies (Arbor Anchor Prospects, McLaughlin's Tree Service, and Gig Harbor Tree Service) donated their services to remove dangerous lightning-struck and ill trees on the Blue Forge Group campus. Hardcore Excavations removed the giant stumps. We filmed free commercials for them through Blue Forge Films.
In 2020, Book 'Em Bookstore in Port Orchard donated their parking lot for us to host weekly book fairs.
In 2021, Morrison Gravel in Port Orchard donated twenty yards of fill dirt to help create an outdoor meeting space for artisans on our Port Orchard campus. McClendon's Ace Hardware in Port Orchard donated roofing materials to help us create an accessible bathroom on campus. The Bremerton Walmart donated to help our children's show, Seriously Cereal, add puppets to their cast.
In 2022, the Port Orchard Lowe's donated lumber to help improve our artisan-in-residence cottage. The Poulsbo Walmart donated to keep Seriously Cereal on the air. Arrow Hardware in Port Orchard donated cinder blocks and lumber to help create a community garden.
We're currently looking for donations of chicken feed for the flock of rescued roosters and hens who provide eggs for our artisans, and lumber to remodel our studio for the Create4U youth group. We're also looking for cafes, bookstores and other venues who are willing to host artisans at small tables inside their stores. We can offer tax deductions and free commercials. Contact us to find out more.
