KidsGardening.org & Hyatt Regency Jersey City
The team at Hyatt Regency Jersey City in New Jersey will award a grant to KidsGardening.org to build a garden at a local charter school. The team has already raised $7,400 on their own and the additional funds will help them reach their fundraising goal.
KidsGardening.org is a program run by the National Gardening Association (NGA). Every year the organization provides 300 funding opportunities to schools, nonprofits, and communities to build and grow their own gardens. Since its creation, the program helped 10,000 schools and community-based organizations.
The garden will be installed at Dr. Lena Edwards Academic Charter School, which is ten minutes away from the hotel and serves students in a neighborhood where the poverty rate is double the average of the state.
