To spend an evening with almost 400 other organizations making up THE GRASSROOTS of this city we call home was truly a gift. It is an honor to receive funding from Citizens Committee for NYC, which manages to fund community gardens, PTAs, and other neighborhood based groups in all 5 boroughs. Receiving this grant money and the incredible non-financial resources that come with it is an incredible opportunity for Together Because.
It is still so exciting to see our name in print!
We look forward to spending our $1,700 grant to organize residents in Sunset Park to found a new neighborhood association with the power to take action!
We will be doing extensive canvassing and neighborhood workshops in order to found a new neighborhood association by the end of October.
