Shepherdstown shop continues donations
Shepherdstown’s On the Wings of Dreams shop has once again donated a portion of its annual sales proceeds to the Potomac Valley Audubon Society.
This is the ninth year shop owner Laura Rau has set aside three cents from each crystal and mineral sold during the year to donate to the Society.
This year’s donation totals $310, the largest annual amount ever. It is based on 2015 sales of more than 10,000 crystal and mineral items. It brings the shop’s total donations to the Society to $2,175.
All these donations have been used to support programs for children, which include camps, scholarships and programs that promote conservation and exploration in nature.
This year’s donation was presented at the shop on April 21.
“As always, we’re tremendously grateful to Laura and her colleagues at the shop for their generosity,” said Alexander.
“The funds they’ve provided to PVAS have been a big help to us. One of the great things about the Eastern Panhandle is that we have so many locally owned, public-spirited businesses like Laura’s.”
The On the Wings of Dreams shop is located at 139 West German Street in Shepherdstown. In addition to crystals, it offers a wide variety of sterling silver and natural stone jewelry; Native American jewelry, books and music; incense; sages, shells and prayer feathers; ceremonial herbs; statuary; essential oils; prayer flags and both Himalayan metal and crystal singing bowls.
