Mini Grant Testimonials#

Movement and Mindfulness @ Maple Hill

“'Moving, Mindful Maple Hill' [was] a series of educational events to get neighbors together in a safe way during COVID. Around 150 neighbors participated . . . in classes like Pollinators 101, Kettlebell 101, Mindfulness 101, and joined in on the Maple Hill Marketplace. Most classes were recorded and posted online so neighbors could participate from home. . . . Our neighbors are grateful for your support and dedication to funding DIY-programs such as ours." -- N. Armstrong

Puertas Abiertas @ FC Bike Co-op

"We hosted an Open House on Saturday, March 23rd for our Latinx Program…We gave out 21 free helmets and 12 kids bicycles. We gave tours of the facilities and explained the resources that were available to the Latino community." -- S. Hafen

Bat houses @ Richards Lake

"We thank the City of Ft Collins Neighborhood Services for this grant. Without this grant, we would not have our bat houses. The bats thank you as well." -- D.R. Ibanez

Outdoor yoga @ FoCo Cafe

"The Fort Collins Neighborhood Services Mini Grant helped the FoCo Cafe Kids Feeding Kids Breakfast Program bring unforgettable educational programming to underserved families in our community. With our grant we incorporated hands-on activities with animals, like meeting a Wolf-Dog from W.O.L.F Sanctuary, and professionally capture moments like this one: a fun, family-oriented outdoor yoga class with Family Balance Yoga." -- M. Garneau
