As workers in an 1883 oyster cannery, students become can makers, printers, labelers, shuckers, fillers, and management personnel and learn about the requirements and pay rates of both skilled and unskilled workers. As pay, students earn brass tokens to redeem in the company store, where they quickly learn the value of a day’s work. Each student also takes home a can of “oysters.”
In addition to cash donations, which can be pledged by check or credit card, the BMI gladly accepts gifts of stock, planned or deferred contributions, and in-kind services. To discuss giving options, please contact the Development Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410.727.4808 x129.
