The Garden is Growing!

2.8.12

Our third session of The Garden kicked off on February 8th and we’re having a great time at the J.B. Callahan Community Center! This session’s students come from the surrounding Parramore neighborhood and from the Boys & Girls Club at the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida. Also, we’ve doubled our number of volunteers and are thrilled to share that we have 26 container gardens, a plot in the Parramore Community Garden and a hydroponic garden in the J.B. Callahan Center that are being maintained by our fabulous students. We would like to thank the volunteers from The Rosen Center who came to volunteer for our Harvest Celebration in December.

Seven VISTAs On-Board

1.16.12

The City of Orlando was awarded a grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service to bring on seven AmeriCorps VISTAs and one AmeriCorps VISTA Leader. We are thrilled to announce that on January 16th all seven of our VISTAs started with ORLANDO CARES’ six service-initiatives, coordinating the programs and recruiting new volunteers. This fabulous group of VISTAs is totally immersed in spreading the word about ORLANDO CARES and recruiting new volunteers.
