Connecting with community
Getting to know your neighbors is the most important (and fun) way to strengthen community. We’ve served on the association’s board of directors, establishing a small grant program for local schools and engaging in community building events. We frequently participate in public safety activities which help us meet our neighbors and keep our community safe.
Growing the next generation
Our work with this low-income neighborhood school includes building parent engagement through social media and outreach, and designing yard signs to increase visibility of the school. We’ve served on the PTA board of directors, and given countless hours to organizing events, fundraising and grant writing, and advocating for the needs of the school – including a grassroots campaign to make Vestal a SUN community school. Each week, we read with students through the amazing SMART reading program.
