TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- The Capper Foundation has teamed up with a Topeka business to help educate and raise funds for the organization.

The foundation has opened opened booths at both Owl's Nest locations, SE 29 and Adams St. as well as SW Topeka Blvd. and Croix St. Shoppers can purchase unique and affordable items created by people with disabilities.

As an incentive, they are also offering 20% off every First Friday.

The booths are also staffed by those who Capper helps.

“We pay them an hourly wage in our businesses to be able to make bird houses, the furniture. Our mail center, auto detailing small engine," Capper Foundation's Chris Ostrander explained. This basically benefits them so they have some more money to be able to pay their bills, or just have some spending money also. But at the same time they’re learning skills.”

Their booths are open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m.
