Now more than ever GTC needs your support for our work to build a more equitable community for all our neighbors, one where everyone feels safe and has what they need for a hopeful and healthy life. We hope that you’ll make a year end contribution to sustain our work into 2017.
Your contribution will help us raise $50,000 by the end of December to support our youth leadership development and food justice organizing work over the winter. All gifts will be doubled by matching funds from a generous friend of GTC.
This is an important moment for GTC as we stretch to grow into our new Walnut St. Farm, support a new crew of youth coming into leadership and build a strong cross cultural community.
Please join us!
Your gift will help cover:
“I am so grateful for what GTC has done for me. Now it is my turn to use the tools I have learned to give back to the community of Mason Square/Six Corners, as well as the whole city of Springfield. I want to help build a united community.”
-Brandon Robinson, GTC Youth Leader
