Healthy, local food contributes to a vital community
We volunteered and built website, print materials, and even a billboard for our neighborhood farmers market to help increase their visibility in the Montavilla community. We also served on their board of directors, writing a grant for a community celebration, managing a weekly email newsletter, organizing a pilot senior shopper program, and helping the market run smoothly each week.
Asphalt, be gone
Depave is all about inspiring and involving community, and their old website wasn’t connecting users. They asked and we delivered. Depave’s new WordPress site is full of sledgehammin’ goodness: social media integration, a forum, calendar of events, internal ads, and two blogs. From parking lots to paradise, they will bring it.
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.
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.
