Capstone – Project
Angela’s House Home Store – A new social enterprise on Long Island
A Collaboration Between
We recently (October 2019) opened the Angela’s House Home Store. It is a retail outlet with new and gently used home goods, furniture, building supplies, etc. It is our hope to partner with students to collaborate and find new and innovative ways to market this social enterprise to get sales as well as donations of these items from people who would otherwise discard them. The proceeds of the store go to the programs offered by Angela’s House, a local 501(c)3 non-profit on Long Island, which assists medically fragile children obtain services and supports to have the best quality of life possible. This is an exciting opportunity as it’s really a two-in-one project as they will learn about Angela’s House and the Angela’s House Home Store.
