This fall, Bluegrass Greensource celebrated its 15th anniversary. During that time, we have worked directly in communities throughout Central Kentucky to help people take the small steps in their daily lives that will add up to big impacts on our shared environment.
As we ramped up our end-of-year fundraising efforts, we were reminded of the deep community support that has been a part of our story thus far. Through this year’s Good Giving Challenge and other fundraising efforts, you stepped up to help us raise $5,190 through 68 donations!
This is funding that will be used to bolster standards-based, community-focused environmental education. Your support will helps us conduct important events, like Home Energy Workshops for the Lexington refugee communities that provide simple and effective ways to increase their home comfort and save money on their utility bills; or lead a cohort of Central Kentucky public school teachers on an exploration of the role that coal has played in Kentucky’s environmental, economic, and cultural history, while also exploring the important conversations and work being done in eastern Kentucky as those same communities look to a future beyond coal; or to simply continue our work with children in the more than 4,000 classrooms that our educators reach every year.
Your support and that of many other Central Kentuckians like who share your beliefs help make all of this possible. Thank you for supporting Bluegrass Greensource this fall and helping us start off our 16th year on the right foot!
