PUBLIC WORKS STREET SWEEPING
• The last week of street sweeping will be the week of October 26th. We will sweep the borough after fall leaf collection has concluded, weather permitting. • Sweeping will take place the day AFTER your regular scheduled trash collection on the second and fourth weeks of the month. • Please Do Not Sweep, Rake or Blow Debris into the street. This will cause damage to the sweeper, increased maintenance costs and cause delays in the sweeping schedule. • Property owners must keep trees at the curb-line trimmed to a minimum of 12 feet above the street so that the sweeper can work close to the curb without damaging the machine. • Please move parked cars and trailers from the street so the operator cannot effectively clean the street.
The Compost Facility is located at 422 S. 24th Street • The Compost Facility requires a permit to gain entry. Please visit the borough website for additional information. • The facility will be open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7:30 AM to 3 PM and Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 7:30 AM to 7 PM. The facility is closed on Sundays and
Holidays. • Yard waste such as leaves, garden debris, tree limbs, bushes and plants may be dropped at the facility. • Leaves may be left in brown compost bags only-NO PLASTIC BAGS! • Items not accepted include grass, topsoil, sod, tree stumps, bamboo or any form of dimensioned lumber. • Staff will load your truck or trailer on Mondays and Fridays from 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM. • The borough may close the facility at any time to process/haul material. • It is a citable offense to drop materials at the facility when it is closed. • Residents may place yard waste items curbside on the 1st and 3rd Saturday from April thru November. June and July are the 2nd and 3rd Saturday.
FALL LEAF COLLECION
• Fall Leaf collection will begin on Monday, November 2, 2020 • Fall Leaf Collection will end on Friday, December 11, 2020. • Your leaf collection day will be the day after your trash collection day! • Leaves may be raked into the street five (5) days prior to your regular scheduled curbside collection schedule. • Leaves should be windrowed along the curb or edge of the roadway. • Leaves prior to the November 2nd start date can be brought to the Compost Facility or can remain on your property until the curbside leaf collection begins.
Codes Enforcement • Residents are encouraged to place leaves curbside (in plastic cans or brown recycle bags) during the 1st and 3rd Saturday’s during the months of October and November for Penn Waste to collect. • DO NOT blow or rake grass, sticks or other yard debris in the street at any time. This is a violation under Ordinance § 176-10 regarding the prohibition of creating obstructions on the streets & sidewalks. • DO NOT place branches, grass clippings, rocks or other debris in with leaves. Any foreign objects placed in leaf piles may damage leaf equipment and significantly impact the leafing schedule. • DO NOT leave cars parked along the street the day of your leaf collection. • PLEASE remember that inclement weather will delay the leaf collection schedule. Residents are encouraged to take leaves to the Compost Facility located next to the Public Works Facility at 422 S. 24th Street. Please visit the borough website, select Public Works and then select Compost Faciltiy.
Plowing borough streets after a snow event is a time consuming process. Following a few simple guidelines can make the operator’s job safer and more efficient: • Pay attention to local forecasts as winter weather and road conditions can change very quickly. If it is necessary for you to drive, please do so responsibly. • Minimize driving as much as possible during and immediately after a snow event. The fewer the vehicles on the roadway allows the roadway to be cleared more quickly and efficiently. • Remove vehicles and trailers from the street prior to a winter event. This will allow the operator to clear the street from edge-to-edge. • Remove basketball hoops from the borough right-of-way. • Please keep a safe operating distance from all vehicles providing winter maintenance. • If you have a mailbox along the roadway, periodically check to ensure that the post and mailbox are in good condition. The post and mailbox must be sturdy enough to withstand snow com-
ing off the plow blade. • Never push, blow or shovel snow into a cleared roadway. • Never attempt to stop or flag down a truck driver while plowing. • Clearing a space along the curb or edge of road before your driveway will reduce the amount of the snow placed in your driveway. • Wait until the street is completely cleared before shoveling the end of your driveway. • Operator’s will often make multiple passes on the same street. • Plow drivers cannot direct snow as it comes off of a plow. Plow blades are fixed to dump snow to the right.
CODE ENFORCEMENT DEPARTMENT SWIMMING POOLS, SPAS, HOT TUBS AND STANDING WATER
Please help the Code Enforcement Division in fighting the threat of West Nile Virus. Do not allow garbage can lids, old tires or any vessel to harbor standing water. These may become the breeding ground for mosquitoes.
OUTDOOR BURNING § 66-7 EXCEPTION TO RESTRICTIONS ON BURNING
Patio and yard wood-burning units used as chimneas, patio warmers and other portable wood-burning devices used for recreational purposes, provided the following shall apply: (1) only clean wood may be used and burned, (2) patio and yard woodburning units must be located at least 50 feet from the nearest structure which is not on the same property as the patio woodburning unit and (3) use of patio and yard wood-burning units shall not cause a nui-
sance to neighbors
GRASS CLIPPINGS AND GREEN WASTE
Blowing/dumping grass clippings, green waste and any landscape material into streets or alleys is prohibited. This is a violation of Borough Code and EPA MS4 requirements. Please refrain from this practice.
Borough dumpsters located at Siebert Park (by the pool and cabin), Fiala Field, the end of South 30th Street and behind the Borough Building are for Borough Department use only. Dumping in, or in the vicinity of, the dumpsters by private individuals/households is a citable offense and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent provided by law.
IPMC § 304.3 PROPERTY IDENTIFICATION
A number of homes and businesses throughout the Borough have unreadable or missing property numbers. Under Section 304.3 of the International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC), building numbers must be a minimum of four (4) inches in height and readable from the street by emergency responders. Following the Code and keeping your home or business properly marked, assists Police, Fire and EMS to respond rapidly and effectively to emergencies. Also, help us to help you by keeping building numbers free of obstructions.
STORAGE OF CAMPERS AND/OR TRAILERS ON STREETS IS PROHIBITED.
Review the Zoning Code of the Borough of Camp Hill for storage requirements.
NO ONE SHOULD BE HUNGRY! The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank will be giving food to all qualified Camp Hill residents in need of food assistance at the Christian Life Assembly Church at 2645 Lisburn Rd in Lower Allen Twp. Please stop by between 9 am and 12 noon on the following Tuesdays: September 8th, October 13th, November 10th and December 8th. A utility bill from your residence is the only requirement. Please stop by if your family is in need !
CUMBERLAND COUNTY VECTOR CONTROL WHAT IS CUMBERLAND COUNTY VECTOR CONTROL, AND HOW DO WE HANDLE MOSQUITO COMPLAINTS?
Cumberland County Vector Control handles the surveillance of West Nile Virus throughout the county. We set specific data collection traps weekly to monitor areas that have had mosquitoes test positive for West Nile in the past. How do we handle nuisance situations? If you put in a complaint at CCPA.net/vector, we will contact you with information on how we will proceed with the complaint. A representative from our office will come to your property to look for standing water. If water is found in something that is easily removable like a bucket or child’s toy, it will be dumped. If the water is found containing larvae in a larger or inaccessible object, like a catch basin or a retention basin, we will treat it with a granular BTI product. If a water source is not found, we will set a data collection trap designed specifically to collect nuisance, meal seeking mosquitoes. Rarely do we use adult spraying to combat a nuisance program. The reason for this is due to the cycle of the mosquitoes causing an issue. They are mainly active during the daytime, however to lesson our environmental impact we must spray at night. For this reason we must find the source of the mosquito problem and eliminate it.

Emergency Management EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT TASK FORCE SEVERE WEATHER SAFETY TIPS – TO SAVE YOUR LIFE!
Helping to save lives one tip at a time Fact: Hundreds of people die each year in the United States due to heat waves, hurricanes, lightning, flash floods, powerful thunderstorm winds, and winter storms or winter cold. Additionally, thousands of people are injured by these weather events each year. Will it happen to you? Fact: If you are aware of what weather event is about to impact your area, you are more likely to survive such an event. To stay on top of the weather, utilize NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards receiver units that can be purchased at most electronic stores. Make sure the model you purchase has a battery-backup. The programmable types allow you to selectively screen out those county warnings you are not interested in. Most homes have a smoke detector; shouldn’t your home also have a weather radio? You should also obtain the latest weather information from commercial TV/radio, cable TV, the internet/web, and newspapers.
LIGHTNING SAFETY TIPS:
1. Postpone outdoor activities if thunderstorms are imminent. Lightning can travel 5-10 miles away from the thunderstorm and strike the ground with blue sky overhead. The storm doesn’t have to be overhead in order for you to be struck. 2. Move to a sturdy shelter or vehicle. Do not take shelter in a small shed, under isolated trees, or in a convertible-top vehicle. Stay away from tall objects such as trees or towers or poles. 3. If in your vehicle when lightning strikes – don’t touch a metal surface. You are safer in a vehicle than being outdoors. 4. Remember that utility lines or pipes can carry the electrical current underground or through a building. Avoid electrical appliances, and use telephones or computers only in an emergency. 5. If you feel your hair standing on end – get down into a baseball catcher’s position and plug your ears with your fingertips so if lightning does hit it will not blow
your ear drums out. Do not lie flat! 6. 30/30 rule – if the time between lighting and thunder is 30 seconds or less, go to a safe shelter. Stay there until 30 minutes after the last rumble of thunder. Web site: http://www.lightningsafety.noaa.gov
FLASH FLOOD/FLOOD SAFETY TIPS:
1. Nearly half of all fatalities in a flash flood involve a person driving a vehicle. Do not drive into a flooded area – Turn Around Don’t Drown! It takes only 2 feet of water to float away most cars. It’s amazing how powerful we feel when we get behind the wheel – don’t do it! 2. It takes only 6 inches of fast-moving water to sweep a person off their feet – don’t walk through a flooded area! 3. If you are camping in a river valley, move to higher ground if thunderstorms with heavy rains are in the area. Do not attempt to drive away. 4. Don’t operate electrical tools in flooded areas. 5. Most flash flood deaths occur in the middle of the night when it is more difficult to see rising water levels judge the depth of water covering road surfaces. Web sites: http://www.weather.gov/os/brochures.sht ml (to find the “Flash Floods and Floods…The Awesome Power” brochure) http://www.srh.noaa.gov/srh/tadd/ (for information on Turn Around Don’t Drown - TADD)
SEVERE THUNDERSTORM STRAIGHT-LINE WINDS:
1. Don’t underestimate the power of strong thunderstorm winds known as straight-line winds – they can reach speeds of 100 to 150 mph. Hurricane-force winds start at 74 mph. Wisconsin does experience these kinds of winds! 2. If a severe thunderstorm warning contains hurricane-force wind speeds seek shelter immediately (as you would for a tornado situation). 3. Stay away from windows and go to the basement or interior room/hallway. Do not use electrical appliances. 4. Be aware that tall trees near a building can be uprooted by straight-line winds – that tree can come crashing through the roof of a home and crush a person to death.
Clubs and Events LION’S MASK ON COVER The lion’s mask on the cover was sewn by Cassidy Knight, a Camp Hill 9th grader. During quarantine, Cassidy started sewing masks for her family and neighbors, but word got around, and she quickly had many masks to sew! Since she originally began sewing the masks to help people, she decided to donate half of her proceeds to charity. As of August, she has donated more than $500 to the Earl Besch Project, which helps Camp Hill kids in need and funds the school backpack/pantry program!
IF INTERESTED IN MASKS, SEE HER FACEBOOK PAGE WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/MASKSBYCASSIDY/ 5. Powerful straight-line winds can overturn a vehicle or even make a person air-borne when they get up over 100 mph! 6. One type of a straight-line wind event is a downburst, which is a small area of rapidly descending rain-cooled air and rain beneath a thunderstorm. A downburst can cause damage equivalent to a strong tornado! Web site: http://www.spc.noaa.gov/misc/AbtDerechos/derechofacts.htm (information on strong straight-line wind events) from the National Weather System
The Camp Hill Woman’s Club, established in 1950, is a philanthropic and social organization of women from Camp Hill and the surrounding area. Our goal is to raise money through various fundraisers to donate to local charities. In light of the pandemic, this year we gave only to local food banks: West Shore Meals on Wheels, Bethesda Missions, Saint Francis Soup Kitchen, and Downtown Daily Bread to support the meaningful and courageous work they are doing. Our monthly meetings normally include a guest speaker and refreshments, but we have suspended all meetings for the time being, of course for safety reasons. Be on the lookout for information on social media and signs around town about our famous homemade Lasagna Dinner (takeout only) in October. Visit our website www.chwclub.com and Facebook.
CAMP HILL BOROUGH’S VOLUNTEERISM AWARD
Camp Hill Borough is fortunate to have so many people who give back to this community and many people don’t realize who they are or what they have done. This will be our 9th year for this award and this individual should be someone who has made one or more outstanding and significant volunteer contributions in some facet to Camp Hill Borough. All details and the application can be found at www.camphillborough.com and in the Camp Hill Borough Office. All nominations are due by the November 2, 2020 deadline and it is not too early to submit one for this year.
The Club’s only goal is to try to preserve /improve Camp Hill’s water, air, land, flora and fauna. We are always looking for new members who share our interests in the environment and to energize our organization. Membership dues are $10 for students and $20 for adults with a maximum of $50 per family. Applications for membership can be picked up in the Recreation Office, calling 7374548, emailing email@example.com or at a CHEC meeting. Depending upon the coronavirus situation, our next business/breakfast meeting is scheduled for Saturday, October 12th, 7:30 am at the West Shore Plaza Restaurant. Come join us! As we are able, CHEC intends to continue our efforts to recycle at the Siebert Park athletic events and Little League Baseball games. We have adopted Market Street in the Borough and clean it four times a year and also clean litter in other areas of the Borough throughout the warmer weather months. In addition, we help clean out sections of the Conodoguinet Creek during the summer months. Unfortunately, all of the 2020 events have been cancelled, but we hope to return to the creek next year. Let’s talk about recycling. If you have followed the news, you know that China threw the industry for a loop when it changed its rules for accepting recyclables, making it virtually impossible for US companies to meet these new rules, thus effectively eliminating this destination for our recyclables. Therefore, Penn Waste was forced to drastically change the list of materials it could accept. Putting other materials in your recycling bins only makes their job harder because those things then need to be sorted out and sent to the landfill. We know you want to do the right thing, so here is a list of the only stuff you should put it your recycling containers: • Aluminum & Steel Cans, cleaned out. • Plastic Bottles & Jugs, #1, 2, & 5, cleaned out; throw away the caps. • Newspaper, clean & dry with no food contact. • Glass Bottles and Jars cleaned out; throw away the lids. • Corrugated Cardboard, dry & flattened w/no food contact, e.g. recycle the top of the pizza box; throw away the grease-stained bottom. • Milk and Juice Cartons, rinsed out. These same rules apply to recycling containers throughout the borough. Only put the recyclables noted above in these containers, and definitely not trash. Please visit the Borough website for more information on the Environmental Club www.camphillborough.com For additional information or to suggest future program ideas, call Paul Garrett at 717514-3546 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Downtown Camp Hill Association UTILITY BILL UPDATE The development of a storm water fee resulted from needed improvements to the storm water facilities and infrastructure in the Borough of Camp Hill. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection requires certain operating efforts to be completed annually, and sediment pollution is reduced by 2023. If the Borough ignores the mandate, it may
be required to perform the same work but also face a large fine. The Utility User Fee is broken down so residents can see how much they are being charged for each service. The storm water user fee is broken down into 4 tiers. These tiers are based upon the amount of impervious area on the parcel. An outline of the tiers is located in the message area of the bill.
Property owners can apply for credits. The Borough’s Credit Policy and application can be found on the Borough’s website. If residents have any questions regarding their bill, please contact Rachel Burger (717)737-3456x1022 in the Borough office. If residents have specific questions about credits and the process for obtaining them, please contact Patrick Dennis via email email@example.com or by telephone (717)737-3456x1042.

A Message From the Director... Well this is not the summer that we planned for in the least. We truly appreciate everyone’s understanding when it came to canceling or rescheduling programs and camps. The good news about our current situation, a lot of you have been out and enjoying our great parks and facilities. We were fortunate that we could open the pool this summer. We appreciate our staff’s hard work and dedication to make this happen. We can’t thank them enough. While we couldn’t offer lunch, it was nice to see many enjoy the music at our Box Lunch Reviews. The community members who came enjoyed something close to a sense of normalcy. Thanks to Highmark, Mid Penn Bank, Service 1st Restoration, HRG and Conte Wealth Advisors for their sponsorships to this program. I would also like to thank all the instructors for a great job this summer. The programs and camps that we were able to have were a little different this summer, but the instructors did a great job teaching the kids and making sure they had fun. We continue to learn and follow the guidelines for COVID-19 and see what programs we are able to offer this fall. We do have some programs listed in this newsletter and they are subject to change if needed. Details about our special events including the
Halloween Costume Contest and Trick or Treat, are in this newsletter. The Toys for Tots Parade information will be available on our website in the coming months.

Our Children, Our Community, Our Future
A Note from the Director… Every year, The Lion Foundation asks for your support in funding school programs and events that cannot be covered through the regular school budget. But 2020 has been different – and our schools need our support now more than ever! In addition to the normal funding requests we receive, we are now helping our schools meet critical technology, remote learning and safety needs so there is flexibility when deciding how to best educate our students in a post-COVID learning environment – whatever form that takes. As a small community, this is what we do. We support each other, whether through buying locally to support community businesses or assisting our schools and teachers so they have the tools they need to teach our children. A special thank you to Superintendent Patty Craig for her hard work and strong leadership over the years. We wish her well in her retirement and remain committed to helping the school district navigate this new educational landscape. These are difficult times, but together, I believe we will rise to the challenge and continue to provide our students with the excellent education that has long been the hallmark of the Camp Hill School District. Thank you for your support. We could not do this without you.

YOUR DONATIONS AT WORK! 2020 ANNUAL APPEAL YOUR DONATION MATTERS!
Each year, The Lion Foundation asks for your support in funding the needs of our schools that cannot be covered through the regular school budget. This year, the pandemic has presented new challenges. In addition to the normal requests we receive, we now have new COVID-related priorities such as technology and school safety/social distancing needs. Our goal is to give our schools the flexibility to reopen as appropriate and provide quality education given our new reality, while keeping students healthy and safe. It is because of your generosity that we are continually able to fund the grants that support our students and teachers. Unfortunately, because of the uncertainty of holding sporting and arts events during COVID, we will not be offering athletic and arts passes at this time. However, what is absolutely certain is that The Lion Foundation will continue its rigorous grant process and its promise to work with the schools to focus your donations on the district-approved areas of technology, safety and academics so that we can continue to support our childrenâ€™s educational endeavors. Our schools need your support now more than ever, and your donation matters! To learn more about The Lion Foundation or to donate, please visit our website: www.thelionfoundation.org; or mail donations to: The Lion Foundation, 2627 Chestnut Street, Camp Hill, PA 17011. Make checks payable to The Lion Foundation. Donations are tax deductible.
WHILE SOME THINGS ARE CHANGING, WE AT THE LION FOUNDATION ARE DEDICATED TO HELPING.
The school district closed its doors on March 13, turning our educational model upside down overnight, and requiring our teachers and students to quickly shift to teaching and learning in new ways. Remote learning is no longer a luxury for our small, community schools, but a necessity. To help build a solid foundation for this new way of learning, The Lion Foundation recently awarded $50,000 to our Camp Hill schools to establish the new TECH CONNECT block grant. This grant has already helped the district begin to address some of its immediate technology needs, including purchasing Chromebooks, and a new, web-based K-12 learning management system called Schoology, through which teachers can create assignments, assessments and discussions with students. To donate or to learn more about the effort, please visit our website at www.thelionfoundation.org.

SO MANY GOOD THINGS HAVE BEEN HAPPENING WITH THE EARL BESCH PROJECT!
20 TO 6-22-20) Canadensis Fund in Memory of Mike Nelson, Sr.
During this pandemic, dedicated volunteers for the project increased the frequency of pantry box distribution - from monthly to weekly - and also reshaped what the boxes contain. They began adding items that are not available through public assistance programs, such as shampoo and conditioner, lotion, toothpaste, body wash, aluminum foil, saran wrap, oil, sugar, tissues, paper towels, toilet paper, feminine products and deodorant. Fresh fruit and vegetables were also added, as well as items to make meals for a taco or pasta night. Throughout, the community has been tremendously generous, donating food, going grocery shopping, packing bags and boxes, loading cars and delivering to homes. The Earl Besch Project even had 50 pizzas from Al’s of Hampden three times, as well as food donations from Sysco Foods and Hershey’s Ice Cream. Thanks to LM Gnazzo Promotion Strategies, the efforts were featured on CBS 21’s Proudly Pennsylvanian and the early morning show (the segments can be found on their website). Camp Hill Little League sponsored the May Pantry Box, Camp Hill Soccer Club did a toiletry drive in June and West Shore Baptist Church sponsored and delivered boxes in June. July is being taken care of by donations from Mount Calvary Episcopal Church, Camp Hill Trinity Lutheran Church, Liberti Church and West Shore Rotary Club. Rounding out the summer, Camp Hill Presbyterian Church is taking care of the August pantry box. This has all meant the world to The Earl Besch Project and its mission. The Camp Hill School District kindly donated cafeteria items that would have expired during the closure. As the closure continued, volunteers were able to use the monetary donations from The Lion Foundation’s Earl Besch Fund to purchase food at The Central PA Food Bank. In addition, the school district provided access to the refrigerator and freezer at the high school. This was incredibly helpful, as it allowed the Earl Besch Project to take advantage of the available perishable food at the Food Bank. Meals Ready to Eat, or MREs, were also donated by the Commonwealth of PA, and were delivered twice. If nothing else, the kids most likely LOVED to experience that. There are two exciting things happening in the future:
TRICK OR TROT
This 5K Run and Walk, with a 1-mile Monster Dash Fun Run, will be held on October 31st, 2020. Registration is opening soon. If you would like to help sponsor the event, or for more information about it, please contact Jackie Sastre email@example.com. Our goal is to raise $13,000 and we are a $10,500.
NEW PANTRY SPACE
Emma Chaplin, a CHHS junior, is working toward her Girl Scout Gold Award, and she chose to help The Earl Besch Project find a permanent space from which it can work. Needless to say, volunteers and supporters are ecstatic about her project! Through Emma’s efforts, the project’s organizers are excited to announce that they are partnering with Camp Hill Little League, and have been given permission to use the Fiala Building as a temporary pantry space. Emma will continue to lead the charge to find a more permanent home, and community members can contact the Earl Besch project if they become aware of available space for a permanent food pantry home in 2021. The number of families the Earl Besch Project serves has risen to 36 - and that includes 73 children. That number is expected to grow and continue to evolve. If you would like to get involved with The Earl Besch Project, please follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or send an email to TheEarlBeschProject@gmail.com. To donate to the project, please visit The Lion Foundation’s website at www.thelionfoundation.org and note the Earl Besch Project.

Ever y effort has been taken during the on-going COVID-19 pandemic regarding safety of all individuals to keep projects on track and provide the necessar y updates to ensure the safety of students and staff moving forward. Since the initial District-Wide Feasibility Study completed in 2018, EI Associates has been working with the District to address building deficiencies and code compliance issues. Working through the long-range facilities plan developed by EI Associates, the District decided to begin with addressing water infiltration issues. The entire building envelope was re-sealed last summer to alleviate any further water intrusion. Additionally, the facility saw the replacement of exterior windows and doors. During summer 2020, the entire facility under went major interior modernization renovations. Both building entrances and the administration areas were reconfigured to provide secure vestibules along with updates to interior finishes for an improved indoor environment. Additionally, some educational spaces were reorganized to accommodate new layouts for enhanced learning experiences. Construction for this phase is scheduled to be completed by the beginning of the new school year. The remainder of the work will be completed during winter break and summer 2021.

CONODOGUINET GREENWAY Imagine a beautiful new greenway—a scenic trail for hiking and biking along the Conodoguinet Creek. Right now, the Friends of the Conodoguinet Greenway are working to launch a feasibility study for this exciting new addition to the community. The Conodoguinet Greenway will be a continuous recreational trail that: • Provides a natural, scenic resource to the community • Improves the health and quality of life for local residents • Follows quiet roads and off-road multi-use trails along the creek • Connects communities along the creek, from the Susquehanna River to Carlisle and beyond
CAN YOU HELP US MAKE THIS HAPPEN?
The Friends of the Conodoguinet Greenway are partnering with the Cumberland Conservation Collaborative to apply for state and county grants to conduct the feasibility study. The initial phase will involve parts of East Pennsboro Township, Hampden Township, and Camp Hill Borough.

Private donations from the community are extremely important to this project because: • The state and county grants we’re applying for require matching funds • Your donation shows public support for the project which increases the chance of the grants being approved • Your donation of any amount is very much appreciated. All contributions are important to the success of this project.
THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO DONATE:
• Visit our Go Fund Me page to use your credit card. https://www.gofundme.com/f/conodoguinet-creek-greenway?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_linktip&utm_campaign=p_cp_guide_do • Pay by check.
