    GivingTuesday 2020

    The funds raised from this year's GivingTuesday fundraiser will go towards the reconstructions of our green house which experienced a fire back in March.

    We are SO thrilled that after months of insurance negotiations, we are finally starting construction on the green house! With this new development however, we do have a gap to fill. Between the actual costs and the insurance payment, we need to raise $250,000 for the green house repairs.

    To start us off on our large fundraising goal, one of our steadfast supporters, Michael McGinley, has made a donation of $50,000!

    He's challenging all of you to meet (and maybe even exceed) his donation on GivingTuesday! By helping us match the $50,000, you can get us almost half way to our total!

    You can also help us reach our goal faster by sharing our fundraiser or creating your own fundraiser by clicking here.

    The rebuilding of the green house is a major step in bringing the families we serve in the residence program back together for support and community. We need your help to reach this goal and get us home for the holidays.

    Green House Rebuilding Fund

    At the end of last year, we announced the start of reconstruction on our green house and we're happy to report that construction is well underway. In addition, we're thrilled to share that of the $250,000 that we needed to raise for building costs, we're 80% there! That means we only have about $50,000 left to raise! 

    If you are able, please help us start off this new year by closing the gap on our rebuilding fund. With the rebuilding of the green house, we will be able to expand our services and meet the ever-increasing need in our city.

    We are grateful for your support and generosity!
