Message from Casey Phillips, Executive Director/Co-Founder of The Walls Project

As we gear up for the 225Gives online giving campaign, I'm excited to share our progress and achievements with you. Through our programs, events, and alliances, we've been able to break down barriers, empower individuals, and create lasting change that benefits everyone. From our community gardens to our entrepreneurship programs to our community building initiatives, we're making a real difference in the lives of those impacted by poverty.

This year, we're inviting our valued supporters and volunteers to join us in the 225Gives campaign, a 24-hour online giving day that helps generate philanthropic giving for area nonprofits. It's a powerful way to unite our community in support of our mission, and we're excited to see the impact that we can make together.
