A.C. Moore hopes to 'craft a better world'


BERLIN, N.J. A.C. Moore announced that it has launched a new initiative called "Crafting a Better World" to give crafters a way to give back to the community.

The initiative kicked off last week in honor of A.C. Moore Arts & Crafts’ 24th anniversary, with a partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, a national network of 4,300 neighborhood-based Boys & Girls Clubs serving more than 4.5 million young people annually through membership and community outreach.


“Crafting a Better World takes our community relations efforts to the next level by adding an ambitious, new program through which we will collaborate with our customers to make a direct impact on the communities in which they live and work,” said Rick Lepley, CEO of A.C. Moore Arts & Crafts. “Our first Crafting a Better World partner, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, is an ideal fit for our company with its emphasis on kids, education and creativity. Our 133 stores will work with their local chapter of that organization to help their customers give back to their own community. As we move forward, we look forward to partnerships with other non-profit organizations throughout the regions we serve.”


During the next five weeks, A.C. Moore Arts & Crafts stores will be hosting crafting parties for participants in local Boys & Girls Clubs. During this same time period, the company is encouraging customers to drop off new or gently used craft supplies at their local A.C. Moore Arts & Crafts for donation to their local Boys & Girls Club. Customers can also add $1 to their bill at check out for donation to Boys & Girls Clubs of America. A.C. Moore will donate an additional $500 to the organization to honor its store which raises the most money.
