Tanglewood Works is built on the support of its community and in turn, we strive to give back to our community. As part of our ongoing Give-Back Fridays we are hosting a fundraiser on July 21st hosted by members of Hyattsville Area Residents for Progress (HARP). Here is a statement from the organizers Julia Crooks and Allison Wakefield, both alumni of UMD:
“At 3am, on Saturday, May 20th, Richard Collins III, a black student from Bowie State University, was stabbed to death by a UMD student with known ties to a white supremacy organization. This recent atrocity on the campus of the University of Maryland has left us all shaken to our core. We cannot, as individuals and as a community, stand idly by and simply hope this never happens again. We must act.

Please consider remembering the life of Richard Collins III and show that hate has no place in our community by joining us at Tanglewood Works on July 21st, where 10% of purchases that mention the fundraiser will be donated to the Richard Collins III Memorial Fund at Bowie State University.

This event was organized by the Hyattsville Area Residents for Progress (HARP), which works to make our community strong, welcoming, and resilient. We are neighbors—of all races, classes, orientations, genders, and nationalities—who stand up to protect one another. Many of us are also UMD alumni, and employees, who feel a deep connection to the university and want to take a stand against hate. Together we are building a better world and a thriving, passionate democracy, in the face of rising bigotry and authoritarianism. To find out more about HARP, visit us at progressivepgc.wordpress.com/ (website undergoing construction). To be added to our google discussion group, contact [email protected]

If you’ve had your eye on a gift or item for you home please come shop with us July 21st from 11-8 and make sure to tell us that you would like to include your purchase in the donation total. 10% of all sales will be donated to the fund on behalf of HARP.
Sincerely,
Team Tanglewood
