“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”
— Colin Powell
We all fail at times in our lives, but this doesn’t mean that we can’t succeed in life. We want to help the Production Assistants at Highland Heights succeed through their failures, and learn from them. Through hard work, perseverance and preparation our unique employment training program uses farming to teach transferable skills to individuals with barriers to employment.
We need your help to empower individuals with the tools, connections, and confidence to find and keep stable jobs; providing a path out of poverty and towards self-sufficiency. Imagine growing up with no positive influences in your life, and then meeting a community that loved and supported you right where you were. Now imagine being able to serve and be a part of that community too, to give back by volunteering and building a sense of accomplishment. What if you were able to financially give to make that community a reality and literally change a life for the better, to give someone their life back? Sometimes knowing that someone else cares enough about your success to donate their time, energy and finances is all your need to believe that you can make a positive change, and that is what you can do for the Production Assistants at Highland Heights. Your investments shows that someone cares, and has a big impact on their successful.
Over the last several months we have been blessed with several community partnerships through grants that have allowed us to purchase equipment allowing us to put more meals on tables. We want to give thanks to United Way of Clinton County, Indiana Health Department, the CDC and our newest partner Duke Energy Foundation. The Duke Energy Foundation has awarded us $10,000 in order to help us build a barn. The barn is going to cost us $20,000 in total to build. This building will help us in several ways: It will allow us to protect our investment in farming equipment for years to come. We want to take good care of our equipment so that we can continue to put thousands of meals on the tables of those who need it most. This barn will also allow us to centralize our equipment for our productions assistants and volunteers. This allows us to become more efficient at our work, and the many hours of work put in by our volunteers. Our goal is to get the barn built by December 2022 before winter sets in. Your donation will help grow more food, and feed more people in need in Central Indiana. Would you consider donating to this project?
