Groundwork Portland Seeks Funds to Meet Challenge Grant

From Groundwork Portland:

Groundwork Portland is actively working with the community to create the Emerson Street Garden, and with your support, will be able to start organizing East Portlanders to act on their right to live in a healthy environment.
Help us begin to meet our challenge grant from Spirit Mountain Community Fund to raise $53,600 to build up youth as leaders to restore land and watersheds. We are also looking for in-kind support for translation/interpretation, childcare, transportation for youth tours, and printing.
Please consider your commitment to these issues by becoming a donor to Groundwork Portland, supporting community-based development.
Just click here for a quick way to make a secure online donation, or go to our website: http://www.groundworkportland.org/contribute.html
Thank you!
