When you give to the Peace and Education Coalition this Giving Tuesday, December 1, 2020, you will be supporting Back of the Yards neighborhood efforts to heal, block by block, in the wake of the pandemic.
Giving small grants of $250-$500 to Back of the Yards organizations to facilitate a summer project has been a favorite effort of the Coalition in recent years. In 2021, as our nation emerges from the economic struggles and social isolation of the pandemic, we want to support block clubs in hosting efforts to reconnect with their neighbors. These efforts may include free food to share, arts and crafts activities for children, small prizes for games, information on resources and more. Our goal this year for Giving Tuesday 2020 is $3000. This will allow us to support 6-12 block efforts across the Back of the Yards as we reunite in the summer of 2021.
