What an incredible transformation of our Tierra Anita Community Garden that's been in need of some TLC lately. Thanks to Cade McFarland, with the Boy Scouts of America Catalina Council, and his group of 20 friends, family, and fellow Scouts, this beautification community service project was quite a success. They helped prepare the land to be planted with plants and produce to encourage socialization for our program participants, to promote community building with residents of the neighborhood, and to teach sustainability for all. After about five hours of converging with tools, trucks, and trailers; weeding; trimming; and hauling debris over to the landfill, the end result was well worth the efforts of all. Thank you, everyone! ...Do you have a community service project idea to help Primavera? Email volunteers@primavera.org and let's see how we can work together.

We are so appreciative to have such an amazing community partnership with Keller Williams Southern Arizona (KWSA)! Our new Volunteer Coordinator, Eric Cross, was on Tucson Morning Blend and was presented with a check for almost $10,000 from KWSA's Second Annual Golf Benefit to support Primavera's programs.

Congratulations to our dear friends at NeighborWorks America for 40 years of service! They have worked to create opportunities for people to live in affordable homes, both rented and owned; improve their lives; and strengthen our communities. They accomplish this mission through a network of nearly 250 nonprofit organizations in all 50 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico. Over the past five years, NeighborWorks organizations have generated more than $30 billion in investment in their communities. The Primavera Foundation is a proud network member of NeighborWorks America. #AdvanceOpportunity #NeighborWorksWorks

What a fantastic way to start the New Year off with our community partner, Pastiche Modern Eatery! They found yet another way to support the programs of the Primavera Foundation beyond their annual Primavera Cooks! dinner. Owners Judie and Costas Georgacas noticed a lot of the complimentary bread they were offering their guests was not being eaten, so they decided to stop the waste and help out Primavera at the same time. Proceeds from the sales of their baskets of bread served with basil pesto and ancho-honey butter will be donated to us! It's truly a delicious win/win for all. Thank you, Pastiche, and all of your guests who participate in this very thoughtful fundraiser. [Featured in the photo from left to right: Primavera Cooks!

The First Annual Raytheon Women's Network (RWN) & Employee Veterans Network (Rayvets) Golf Tournament raised $3,266 to help veterans in our community through the Primavera Foundation. The event was led by Tashma Teepell, RWN committee chair, and Felicia Jackson, Rayvets chair. The outing was organized by TJ Haynie, Raytheon global growth program manager, who had 16 teams playing for the title and another 20 volunteers to help keep everything running smoothly. We want to thank everyone at Raytheon who played a part in making this first-time event such a great success!
