Honoring the women who have or continue to make a difference in our lives and to support those that are striving to, The Mixed Border Nursery & Gardens presented The Front Door Agency with a check for $1000, a donation of a portion of sales from Mother’s Day, for the Transitional Housing Program.
The Transitional Housing Program at The Front Door, provides young women and their children the opportunity to live in safe housing with supportive services offering them the assistance to develop the skills necessary to reach and maintain self-sufficiency.
Thank you to those who visit The Mixed Border and helped make this possible.
Planting Hope: The Mixed Border Gives Back
Sometimes we have to let go of the reluctance to promote the organizations that we support personally or as a business: now is not the time to be shy or reluctant about giving back to the community. It is about helping in whatever way is possible…
Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does. ~William James
