Help With The Vision
So thankful and grateful to all who donated to help us get up and running. Our initial fundraising was successful and we now have the tools we needed to start the work. THANK YOU!
It is time to start work on our long term goal of purchasing a van to help us move large quantities of equipment and fruit and to meet our ongoing operational expenses.
We are eager to connect with you and continue doing this important work.
Thank you for your support.
