Earlier this summer I was contacted by Rhonda Ecker, a representative of Time Financial, seeking an opportunity for her group to help improve our Stoddert Elementary School garden ("The Outdoor Classroom") in Glover Park. Hannah Schiff, our wonderful Stoddert Garden coordinator, said the garden always is in need of seeds during fall and spring plantings, as well as other small gardening items. Time Financial organized a donation from all of it's DC summer conference attendees and delivered seeds, seedling sticks, gloves, bandanas, miracle grow and gardening books after their conference! Stoddert is grateful for the generous donations and the students will have lots of resources this year for hands-on learning in the garden.
By the way, a 4000 square foot garden needs garden volunteers! Hannah needs your help to maintain the garden, water, create garden art and even take care of the chickens when they arrive! Please consider signing up. You don't even need to be associated with Glover Park or Stoddert or have kids there to help out!
In previous years, Time Financial coordinated donations from their conference attendees in Chicago to help cats and dogs awaiting adoption, and in Seattle to help kids at the local Children's Hospital.
