In 2016, we participated in the Tulsa Area United Way campaign for the first time. As a trailblazer, we were one of 26 companies to complete our campaign prior to the Day of Caring on September 9th. As a first year organization, we raised $20,715.84 through our campaign, which will later be matched by other organizations. We enjoyed participating in a campaign that will directly affect our community for the best.
To conclude our campaign, we spent Friday, September 9th at Global Gardens, an organization that teaches Union middle school students how to garden and cook in order to feed their families. We constructed three new, large garden beds and a compost, cleaned up many outdoor and indoor areas and repainted part of the house. This prepared the center for the students that would start the program the following week. We are excited to see how Global Gardens is able to use the new beds to make a difference in students’ lives!
