We've come a long way in a short amount of time. The Building Block of Natrona was merely an idea that we talked about a couple of years ago. Today, we're operating programs that meet family needs with an army of volunteers and a small, but effective, budget.
This post will take a look back at what we've achieved, and who we've helped, in the few months that our programs have been operating. And, we'll close with a look ahead to what's in store for 2019!
And, most of all, I want everyone who has been a part of this organization to know how much good you're doing and how much we appreciate you.
We've held three Veggies for All events with the first occurring on October 20th. In that time, we've reached a significant number of families in Natrona:
We also launched our first Cosmetics Closet program in December. This program also reached a significant number of residents in its first month:
With limited funding (for now), no building of our own, and no paid staff, The Building Block of Natrona obviously relies heavily on partnerships and in-kind donations. Some very generous people and organizations have been willing to help us. We'd like to acknowledge some of our organizational partners in this space.
Coming in 2019
We have big plans for 2019. We'll provide more details as these things evolve.
