Environmental Justice

Random Acts
of Cleanup

We develop hands-on projects and raise awareness of our own behavior in producing pollution. Floatables can impact the community both with severe flooding by blocking drains, causing safety issues and other potential harms. Potential toxins spread among the community's air, soil and water which can be released through photo degradation or direct human dermal exposure. Our goal is to improve and protect local waterways, to educate residents and young people on the negative effects of plastic floatables, cigarette butts, balloons, straws and debris.

Suburban Organic Farminig In Action

After seeing increasing health issues during the past few years we were inspired to combat this issue from the root. Thus inspiring SOFA (Suburban Organic Farming in Action) program. Through research we found that organic food was too expensive. We discovered that growing or own food would be cheaper, easier, and healthier. We would  teach them how to farm to lead them to healthier lives so they can "Soar to New Heights". We're set to launch the program in Spring of 2023!

Civic Participation

Calls for Comfort &
Caravans for Care

“Calls for Comfort” started with check up calls in Mid March of 2020, asking questions that focused on the Covid-19 crisis and related issues. Once we gained the trust of our members, calls were being answered and members would ask us where to find  food & other essential items.

Donations from wonderful neighbors in our community are coming in. Families have received food, baby needs, diapers and Easter chocolate to comfort them. We are still making calls & deliveries through our "Caravans for Care" program. Donations are still welcome.
