Tawanda “Wawa” Jones is the President and Founder of CSS. This is her corner where she gives a video shout out for all our visitors.
This month, Wawa and a few of the crew announce CSS’s new fund raising campaign to transform their recently purchased run-down, factory building into a life-changing, community outreach center for the city of Camden. It will be called ‘The Dynamite Center’ and it’s a big dream, with an even bigger and more important mission. Check it out! And if you’d like to donate to our campaign (Thank You!) click here.
Help Us ‘Raise’ The Dynamite Center
The property has been purchased (top left), but it is a dilapidated, aging, factory building that requires significant renovation. The renovated site (bottom left) will serve not just CSS, but all the people of Camden. It will include a studio, classrooms, a kitchen, office space, a CSS store and a media room where the kids can do their homework after school.
The Dynamite Center will serve the Camden community at large. It will be a lifelong dream come true for Tawanda Jones, and a real blessing for the many people who will call it home.
