The Copper Nail Community Resale Shop serves Grass Lake (GL), and surrounding communities, in a variety of ways:
- Our mission as a community resale shop is to serve our community by providing funding to local non-profit organizations.
I can provide a list of these organizations but included are the Grass Lake Ministerial Association (heating support and prescription support for the needy, among other programs), GL Food Bank, GL "Day of Hope" (provides non-food items to the needy), Lions Club, GL schools lunch program, American Legion and VFW, GL Fire Auxiliary (for families who have experienced a fire), many GL school band and sports programs not supported by school funding, etc.
- We provide a "destination" local shopping location for inexpensive items to be purchased by families and the elderly with limited incomes (we know many of our regular shoppers and their family members by their first names).
- We provide a place for meaningful volunteer work for around 40 men and women from our community, a place for "giving back" to the community, social connection and friendships.
- We provide funding to help support the Grass Lake Senior Center, Grass Lake museums and are often a major sponsor of village community events.
- And, many other ways.
