Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit The LIME Foundation on #GivingTuesdayNow.
The LIME Foundation is dedicated to providing educational services for youth and seniors in all ways possible during the COVID-19 crisis – and beyond.
Our NextGen Trades Academy continues to provide classes to youth ages 16-24 who are exploring careers in construction trades. By June, this full cohort of the NextGen Trades Academy will be complete, with close to 20 graduates possessing new OSHA construction worksite safety certificates – and ready for us to place in construction jobs. Learn more about the NextGen Trades Academy here: www.nextgentradesacademy.com
In addition to trades education, The LIME Foundation offers two other programs: Senior Activities Program and Turner Arts Initiative. The Senior Activities Program is being modified to be held online for a group of 20 participants starting in June. The Turner Arts Initiative is on hold while we seek funding to deliver these classes in a modified fashion and pay instructors.
Loss of grant income and individual donations during the shelter-in-place order mean less income is available for The LIME Foundation to carry out our mission. Further, we have had to cancel three fundraising events due to COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders. This is why we are asking for your help!
Thank you for supporting the work we do at LIME.
