As of 11/1/23 we are very proud to have made donations to Sinclair Community College toward the endowment of a perpetual annual “Doughlarship” to a Dayton Public School graduate, and a donation to the wonderful Mission of Mary Cooperative whose mission is below:

From their website: “For a decade we’ve been building a network of urban agriculture projects that allow us to offer fresh produce to our neighbors year round. In 2021 we harvested 67,000 pounds of vegetables from curly kale to cherry tomatoes.”

We’re building systems that support sustainable lifestyles in our community. Through a focus on urban agriculture, education, and the stewardship of green spaces, we’re cultivating a positive environment for the wellbeing of our neighbors. ”

— Mike Schulz, executive director
