Thank you so much for facilitating the six-month loan of the new Chevy van for our Green Youth Farm and Windy City Harvest programs. It provides much-needed transportation of staff and materials to locations throughout the Chicago area.
These outstanding programs serve high-school students and young adults from underserved areas of the city and give them an opportunity to break out of a cycle of poverty and unemployment. It is inspiring how involved the participants become, how hard they work throughout the year, and the enormous pride they take in their accomplishments and knowledge. The lessons they learn provide an important foundation for them and will benefit their community in the future.
With warm thanks,
President and CEO
Chicago Botanic Garden
