In the past nineteen months, we have expanded our efforts to meet the needs of our communities. The biggest challenge was growing with a greatly reduced volunteer base. To say we are exhausted is an understatement. But we are also incredibly proud of what we have accomplished and what we continue to achieve every day. We are so blessed to have amazing supporters and volunteers who work tirelessly to feed our community. We would be honored to have your support to continue our efforts. We are sharing a list of our current needs. We hope we can find the support to grow, educate, and support. Thank you~
– A licensed and bonded tree service to donate their service (or provide a substantial discount) to trim trees in our flagship garden in Summerville, South Carolina. Our plants desperately need more sun this fall and winter!
– We desperately need a volunteer with a small tractor to level off a section of our garden where trees were removed. We plan to use the space to expand our garden, but that is not possible until that area is leveled off.
– A volunteer with a stump grinder to help tackle a few roots in the garden.
– A Polywood Rocking Chair for our outdoor classroom. Sadly, our beautiful wooden rocking chair could not withstand the elements; therefore, we need a non-wood rocking chair.
– Four new outdoor yard signs to share the information regarding our free dinners. The signs we place outside the Summerville Baptist Church are a vital communication tools to share when our dinners will be held. We need four new signs size 18 by 24.
– For our Katie’s Krops Dinners, we need canned corn, stuffing mix, divided to-go boxes, ranch salad dressing, chickpeas, ketchup, kidney beans, Worcestershire sauce, pepper.
– A small backless bench.
-Fall flowers- mums, snapdragons, pansies, freesias for our flagship garden to continue to attract pollinators.
