Guided by Voices frontman and prolific solo artist Robert Pollard has been keeping busy so far this year. Just this week, his Lifeguards project with Doug Gillard released a new album called Waving at the Astronaut, and several spring festival appearances have been announced for Guided by Voices. Pollard also announced this week that he’d be giving back to his community by holding an online art sale to benefit the United Way of Greater Dayton. There’s a wide variety of artwork available on Pollard’s website including his trademark collages and fake album covers. Artwork is 50% off or more, and the proceeds will go to the United Way of Greater Dayton.
Dorothy Lane Market has been supporting our community since 1948 and even include this support as part of their mission statement. Their Good Neighbor Program is the main ways they do this. Now with three locations, Dorothy Lane Market has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to numerous local non profit organizations over the past several years through this program.
In 2010, DLM will donate $40,000 back to the community. The fun part is that you choose how the money is distributed using your DLM Club Card! All you do is simply choose an organization from the over 400 on their list to have your purchases credited. The groups span the interests of the community, including A Special Wish, Dayton Gay Men’s Chorus, the Humane Society, Stivers Seedling Fund and Project READ. If your favorite charity isn’t included, just contact DLM to add it!
Every time you shop and scan your Club DLM card, your chosen nonprofit organization is “credited” with the purchase. At the end of the year participating charities will receive a pro-rated portion of the total $40,000, depending on the amount spent by participating customers with a Club DLM card. Sign up today and shop at Dorothy Lane Market to benefit the charity of your choice! Neighbor Program for 2010!
