Plant a victory Garden:

Does your family garden have some extra space? Why not plant a few rows of produce for your local food pantry? Fresh produce is healthy and can be hard to find or expensive for many families. Reach out to a local pantry to find out what fresh produce they need. This is a great project for the whole family!  The extra vegetables from your gargen can be donated to food pantries:  https://uwci.galaxydigital.com/need/detail/?need_id=513347

Tiny Homes for the Homeless, ongoing
Building on a model that has been successfully implemented in more than a dozen US cities, A Tiny Act of Kindness will create a community of tiny homes for people experiencing homelessness. Our project will focus on housing people classified as experiencing episodic or transitional homelessness with the goal of diverting people from experiencing chronic homelessness. By intervening early and providing access to a continuum of supportive services, our community will help residents bridge the gap to stable permanent housing.
