Hello, my group and I are helping low-income families in Vinton County that can’t afford nutritional food by planting and giving them container gardens so that they have fresh vegetables. In Vinton County there is a 21% poverty rate. Our motto is, “we may be small, but make a big difference”. We work by this motto and do our very best to live by this motto. We believe that our project will make a positive change in the community.
In early spring, we will be buying the supplies necessary for planting container gardens like gardening soil, seeds large containers, and anything else we may need. We then we will plant the seeds and when they are ready, we will take the plants to a non-profit food bank called, St. Francis Outreach. Then, St. Francis Outreach will then distribute the container gardens to people in need.
During the school year we will have school fundraisers to help us buy the supplies needed. You can help by donating money, gardening soil, large containers, seeds, tomato cages, and anything else we may need to Vinton County Middle School located on, 63780 Locker Plant Coleman Road. The donation deadline should be before the first week of March. Donations will be very appreciated. The container gardens will help low-income families will help them have fresh fruits and vegetables right at their fingertips for free.
We will be helping low-income families have fresh fruits and vegetables that want them. This will help low-income families have nutritious food at their house for free. Special thanks to St. Francis Outreach for helping us out. Also thank you for your time, consideration, and donations. Once again thank you for making it all possible!
