A note from Gateway Greening Executive Director Matt Schindler.
To our Gateway Greening supporters,
This is a tough time for St. Louis, for the US, and for the world. COVID-19 is affecting all of our lives. For Gateway Greening, we have canceled all of our public classes and workshops through May 11, canceled a fundraiser, closed our office to the public, and are postponing the installment of new gardens and garden expansions. We are also going to postpone our new Garden Open House that was scheduled for May 9.
We ask for your continued support during this time. It will not be easy for Gateway Greening or other non-profits. With Gateway Greening, our mission is community-focused, and now to protect our communities and our staff, we have to avoid our communities. Once we are able to resume a level of normalcy, we will get back to teaching, building, and growing in all of our communities.
To support Gateway Greening, we will hold our annual 24-hour online fundraiser on April 8. We will have “Happy Fun Funding Hours” on Wednesday, April 8, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. More details will be provided as the event gets closer. This event is based on matching donations. If you wish to contribute now as a matching donor, please let me know. We are also looking for unique and fun additions to this online fundraiser, so send us your ideas.
Thank you for your support of Gateway Greening over the years! And stay healthy!
