REACH International

All funds raised from the Greenhouse Competitions go to R.E.A.CH. International.  This local charity has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to build schools & clinics, drill water wells, and sponsor and care for impoverished children in Uganda, Africa.

Their unique program guarantees that 100% of child-sponsorship dollars goes to help the children. Fundraisers, such as this one raise money for operating expenses and since we’re all volunteers, our expenses are very low. Whatever we raise beyond those expenses also goes to our projects.
