*cino needs YOU to vote each day in December to help us win a $50,000 grant to renovate the old kindergarten room at Huss School! Why vote? Read on…
Reason #30: *culture is not optional has made good progress in the renovation work at Huss and building credibility in the community, but needs your help to continue moving forward.
At this point in the voting cycle, we’re well aware that $50,000 from Pepsi is not in the cards for *cino at this time, but we’re not discouraged! So many people have “showed up” to vote and we’re proud that we’ve finished as well as we have. Since we purchased the building in June 2009, we’ve been working hard on a shoestring budget and a lot of prayers, and we’ll continue to do so. The community garden will re-plant in the spring with renewed energy and new ideas. Service groups will continue to chip away at demolition and renovation as resources are available. The property at Broadway and 8th will continue to develop as a gathering space for neighborhood kids. And we’ll continue to network with neighbors and other local organizations to see how our space can be of service. But we need YOU to keep moving forward. Please cast your vote today, but also consider making a financial gift or sending us a word of encouragement. Thank you for your faithful support of *cino’s work!
