“Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”

#TheGreatGive Meet and Greet with our founders

May 3 @ 5:30 pm7:30 pm

May 3rd is a big date for Eli’s Garden of Healing ..It would have been Eli’s 16th birthday 💔

Instead we are going to be filled with energy to fundraise for the official start of The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven #thegreatgive

The day starts off with a competitive, power hour Black Futures Fund prize contest from 8-9 am. To qualify for the prize we need as many donations (any size!) during that hour. The more donations, the more chances for us to win $2,500.

That night from 5:30-7:30 our founders are hosting a meet and greet in their front yard to talk about Elijah’s senseless death and the work our nonprofit is doing to help community members heal from violence and to prevent more from occurring. This casual meet and greet includes free beer which is generously sponsored by Night Shift Brewing 🍻(21+ for the beer)

Whatever way you can financially support this fundraiser, is appreciated and critically needed. Early giving is open.
