Painting it Forward

These whimsical trees are a pleasure to paint. The swirls reach up into the sky and down below into the ground. A pop of color, here and there, and you have yourself a masterpiece.
Fundraiser for Hugs & Mugs Cafe
PLEASE: no coupons or refunds on any "Painting it Forward" Fundraisers
The “Hugs & Mugs” Career Training Program is a retail café and gift shop run by adult’s with Down syndrome and program support staff. Our interns at Hugs & Mugs sell specialty coffee and gelato, as well as personalized gifts including water bottles, cell phone cases, travel mugs, and more.
All of our adults with Down syndrome can excel in their internship into employment opportunities beyond the program. Hugs & Mugs is open 5 days a week and interns typically work 16-20 hours each week. Interns learn customer service skills (taking and filling orders at the counter); sales skills (using the cash register machines, making change, and issuing receipts); food & beverage service skills (preparing and serving coffee, espresso and other specialty drinks), logistics and fulfillment skills (order packaging and shipping), IT skills (downloading, filling, confirming and tracking online orders), and more.
