We are excited to be one of 11 organizations who were awarded a 2021 Neighborhood Promise Grant from the Republic Services Charitable Foundation!
These grants will provide funding for neighborhood revitalization projects across the country in communities where Republic Services customers and employees live and work. According to the Foundation’s news release, “The majority of this year’s projects support historically Black neighborhoods that have experienced disinvestment, and many of them address food insecurity and sustainability efforts.” You can read the full release here.
The grant we received will be used to further the progress made by local leaders and residents to improve and beautify the Rondo Commemorative Plaza and Community Center in St. Paul. We are grateful for the support of Republic Services as we honor the history of this place and community, while making the space more functional and welcoming.
