Thanks to our fabulous network, and some persuasiveness on our part, Women’s Service Day has received a $5,000 grant for Nuestra Casa, the neighborhood center we’re helping renovate in the City of Holland.
Did you “Vote for Sue“? Planning team member Sue Gadbois, that is. She entered the “Marigold Ideas for Good” Contest from TakePart.com on behalf of the Nuestra Casa project. The contest was an invitation for individuals who have innovative ideas for improving their communities and the world. And Sue was one of five first-place winners to receive the $5,000 grant! Yay, Sue!
Thanks to everyone who voted because half of what winners were judged on included the number of votes received! This grant will contribute to our overall funding to help complete construction at Nuestra Casa.
