Current Projects

Community Garden

80% of the gardens in Dayton are completely unmanned. While we wait on the community center, we’re looking to support existing Community Gardens in West Dayton.

In 2020, that garden was the Dakota Center.

Community Center

Your children deserve a safe place to learn and grow. Unfortunately, we know that that place isn’t always school and it isn’t always home either.

We’re raising funds to build our very own Community Center in West Dayton. We’ll be taking you on that journey with us !
