Local Business donations needed!

Thank you gifts for mentoring volunteers

Thank you gifts for mentoring volunteers

Hi, Local Business owners,

City of Tacoma is having a Mentoring/Tutoring Fair this Wednesday.  (Sorry for the short notice!)  We are hoping to sign up employees to volunteer to support established mentoring organizations (which will be there to talk with them) in outreach to our City's youth.  And we want to thank those who sign up by the end of February.  This is part of the Tacoma Clean and Safe, IMPACT team's program.

Among the gifts we already have are tickets to local sports and musical presentations, gift certificates for food/drink, passes for movies, and gift certificates for massage/hypnosis/Reiki services!  How about your business?  Would you like to join our sponsors and give a reward to someone reaching out to our young people?  And perhaps find a new client/customer in the bargain?  Tap in to a new market?!

If you get word to me by end of day Tuesday, January 13th, I'll be sure your name appears on a sponsor display.  If you email me a brochure/flyer/etc., I'll put it on the table or bulletin board.  Email me at if you'd like to donate or want more information.

Again, sorry for the short notice and donations are still welcome through February.  And thank you for helping us IMPACT our next generation.

I'm trying to find the folks who worked on this garden site in the past. I've met some at various events, but now I can't find them! Or the owner of the property.

As I understood it, the issue that stopped the garden was a broken water pipe. I have a solution to that. What I'd need to make this happen would be permission to do it from the owner, a few people who could help dig some trenches, and someone to agree to take responsibility for the water account. (That wouldn't mean they would have to pay it themselves, necessarily, but TPU will need someone to open the account, probably the owner of the property.)

I have lots of seeds, too, that I'd like to see planted this season since they were generously donated. I am also willing to work some on the garden, but I'm still in the process of purchasing the property on S J St. so won't have a lot of time.

So if you want to be part of this lovely garden site again, or for the first time, and can put me in touch with the owner, etc., please email me at
