July Dose Cause: The Honeycomb Project

Working together to deck the halls at Greenhouse Shelter

After a career in the professional non-profit world, Kristina Lowenstein realized she needed a new way to serve her community now that she had children. The ideal position would give her the flexibility to be a mom and also introduce her kids to the fun and enriching experience of volunteerism. Putting her founder’s cap on, she created The Honeycomb Project with co-founder Catherine Tannen, a similarly service-oriented parent.

Not-so-large, but definitely in charge

Since the organization’s inception in 2011, hundreds of families have come together through the Honeycomb Project’s kid-friendly and well-managed volunteer opportunities. Whether cooking and eating a hot meal with shelter guests, packaging art supplies for pediatric patients, or sprucing up local beaches and trails, these events have been sell-out successful. And that’s no surprise: the combined expertise of Kristina, Catherine, and their small staff includes years of experience in non-profit management, advertising, and event planning — and, most importantly, a whole lot of heart.

Cooking a meal for the community

Here at Dose, we believe that you’re never too young to dream big, connect with your community, and make your little corner of the world a more beautiful place. That’s why we think The Honeycomb Project is an organization on the up-and-up. They’ll be at July Dose to chat about their mission and to help you and your family get involved. Wholesome local honey and handmade honeycomb soap will also raise funds for the non-profit and serve as a sweet reminder of what we can accomplish together — at any age.
