Giving Back to the Community
MetroGreenscape takes great pride in the community and strives to give back as much as possible to invest in our future.
Because Of You!
We wanted to send you a note to say thank you! Thank you for helping us to achieve our mission which is to Impact People and Change Lives Eternally. You may be wondering how you have helped us to do this:
MetroGreenscape staff went to the Salvation Army Women’s shelter and threw a big holiday party full of face painting, family photos, treats and lots of presents to over 150 children. This couldn’t be done without you.
MetroGreenscape spent time with the student leadership team and staff at Garinger High School a Title 1 and 501c3 school in the Charlotte area. We along with one of our partners Site One reconstructed their courtyard creating an outdoor classroom along with enhancing their landscaping space that will increase student attendance and provide an area that they can be proud of this area will be kept up seasonally by MetroGreenscape.
MetroGreenscape doesn’t just provide support locally we also serve over seas. Our staff is made up of men and women from all over the world, so we serve both people in Central America and Africa. For the second year in a row MetroGreenscape has traveled to serve over seas. This year our Client and Community Experience Manager along with Good Shepherd Church went to Guatemala to serve a small village in Barberena where they built three, two-bedroom houses from the ground up and three stoves in five days. The homes were built for three families with a combined total of nine kids ranging from ages 10 months to 16 years old. We also participated in Vacation Bible School provided by Good Shepherd Church which served over 286 children and assisted in teaching the mothers and women of the village how to crotchet in order to make wash clothes, mitts for the oven and blankets for cold nights.
Currently, our owners are back in Tanzania, Africa for the 2nd year in a row serving the people by assisting various villages along with serving at an orphanage. We will have more news and photos for you in our next newsletter.
