Talking "We Grow Dreams" - Volunteers Needed!

All,

A former coworker of mine is part of the management staff for an organization called "We Grow Dreams" in West Chicago. Basically, it's a greenhouse/garden center that in part trains and employs special needs kids. When things are right, they have a full time staff working normal business hours supplemented by a special needs work force that works with them. Due to the current economic climate they are VERY short on both money and staff and are in desparate need of help.

I along with a few others will be heading out there this to lend a hand. They have been extremely grateful for just 2 or 3 people coming out, I can't imagine the response if we were able to round up a bunch of blokes that, knowing this board, don't mind getting dirty!

Here's the website: http://www.wegrowdreams.org/

Please take a look at the link and let me know if anyone would be interested in giving a great cause a helping hand in a time of need.

There are no obligations of any kind, so please don't let that be a worry. I'm heading over when I have time...please let me know if anyone has any additional questions.


Tom

When you going out?

Namaste

To the times I'll never remember, with the friends I'll never forget.

I'll be heading there this Saturday, but they are always looking for help. I will likely head over when I have some free time from here on out.

Saturday's are bad for me at the moment (working Friday and Saturday overnights) but I'll swing out there some other time. If you're heading over there on a Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday, shoot me a pm.

Namaste

To the times I'll never remember, with the friends I'll never forget.

I'm going to see how many people we have with interest and coordinate with owners to arrange things.
