We had a smaller-than-usual but upbeat crowd last week at our June event at Hawks & Reed (our 8th event!). The nominees drawn from the hat were Community Network for Children Program, Greening Greenfield, and It Takes a Village. It was interesting to hear from two organizations that are doing such good things for families and children in Franklin County, and Greening Greenfield is doing great work to build sustainability. The voting was close (I know, we always say this, but it’s true!), and all three are deserving, but our collective gift went to It Takes a Village. Yay!!!! They offer free postpartum support to families with infants and young children. Congratulations, and thanks for doing this important work for our community!!!
So far we’ve raised $865 for It Takes a Village, but the money is still coming in . . . stay tuned for our grand total, and for our September event date!
