Thanks to all our friends, supporters, volunteers, sponsors, and partners!
In this season of Thanksgiving, we want to thank all our friends, volunteers, sponsors, partners, and donors for all their hard work and support. This year, we were able to bring over 10 free events for the community with the help of our friends, donors, partners and sponsors. Over 500 people volunteered to help clean the park and start our garden restoration project.
Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah! A fun fact, Hanukkah and Thanksgiving falls on the same day this year, November 28, 2013.
