AGC’s Construction Leadership Council (CLC) is excited to announce their partnership with Construction for Change (CfC) in support of World Relief for their 2019 philanthropy project. CfC believes that every person – regardless of where they live – should have access to well-built spaces where they can manage their health, further their education, or increase their economic mobility. By providing low-cost construction management services to local and international nonprofit organizations, CfC is able to support the life-changing work of their nonprofit partners.
World Relief is a global nonprofit that focuses on building sustainable programs for vulnerable refugee communities throughout the world. Since 1979, World Relief has worked to help refugees and immigrants find stability in the Greater Seattle Area. As a part of this mission, they have created community gardens for this diverse community to take part in.
Please join the CLC and CfC as we begin building an outdoor kitchen and communal space for World Relief’s South King County community gardens, where refugees and immigrant families can grow food, share culture, and build economic stability.
This gathering space will be used to:
Host community classes for refugees and immigrants on topics like seed saving, increasing crop yields, companion planting, and composting and organic gardening in the PNW
Provide natural opportunities for refugees, immigrants, and community members to build community with one another through harvest celebrations and cultural cooking demonstrations
Host refugee gardeners leadership meetings to build leadership from within the community
Host community health interventions such as diabetes prevention classes/food as medicine/and teaching healthy eating habits to your children
Host Know Your Rights trainings for refugees & vulnerable immigrants
Host family and parenting classes
Your company can jump on board with the 2019 World Relief philanthropy project and be apart of providing life changing care for our Kent communities. Your contribution of financial support, materials, and labor, as well as pro-bono services, makes all the difference!
