Lending a hand to Camden Printworks

$18,862 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 259 people in 3 months
Created March 12, 2019
For over 15 years, Adam Woods has run Camden Printworks, building and expanding a business that is committed to employing a diverse group of people, especially from the community of Camden NJ, investing in a local economy that desperately needs support.  If you have ever had something printed by CPW you can attest the simple but unique spirit of the company.  The mission has always been to make great products with great people and give back when ever you can.    Adam's leadership and vision has grown the company and the impact.  Whether it is shipping 5, 000 sweat shirts to Prague or welcoming anyone who shows up at the shop with a t-shirt to have BLACK LIVES MATTER printed on it for free, Adam's integrity and advocacy are at the center of CPW. 

Over the weekend, the Camden Printworks print shop was robbed of nearly everything in it. Over $150,000 worth of equipment, computers, tools and merchandise are gone. This is a devastating blow to their small business and the morale of a group of people who have worked so hard.  True to his nature, Adam is taking this as a setback that only affirms his commitment to fighting poverty and injustice. Camden Printworks will rebuild and bounce back, but it's time to give back to someone who has helped so many people.

This campaign exists simply to get CPW printing t-shirts again. With our help, CPW will replace the computers, printers, software, phones, modems and other items necessary to print shirts, keep their business running and keep the employees working. Adam and his team at CPW have printed our Family reunion, team, company, show and protest shirts.  They have rushed the job for our bags for a justice conference and the sweatshirts commemorating our church retreats.  They have served our community with integrity and compassion, lets show them how thankful we are for how they do business.  Any amount will help and your generosity is appreciated beyond words.

Hello friends!
The love and the donations keep pouring in and we are continually amazed - this is truly making all the difference in CPW's ability to bounce back from their burglary last weekend. With one final push, I know we can reach our goal!

I talked to Adam yesterday, and he and his team would love to send out shirts as a thank you to those who have donated. For donations of $35+ you will receive a Camden Printworks t-shirt mailed from us. $200+, you'll get yourself a sweatshirt!

Please continue to spread the word as best you can and help take us to the finish. And thank you, again, for all you've done so far.

Love, love, love!

Hi everyone,
The words you've written and the dollars you've generously donated have demonstrated what an incredible community surrounds Adam and the CPW family. Thanks to all of you we are nearly halfway there, not even 24 hours after posting this campaign. It is truly incredible. Adam and the team are already underway with that we've been able to raise to far-- let's keep it going!! Please continue to share our campaign among your networks and remember there is no donation too small.

To steal a post from Ted Howell:
Walt Whitman wrote of Camden:
I dream'd in a dream I saw a city invincible . . .
Nothing was greater there than the quality of robust love . . .

Let's show Adam and company some robust love as they fight back, invincible
