Nonprofit Spotlight – FREEFLOW Club

COW 1016-web

The FREEFLOW/Environmental Club of Whitefish High School is a group focused on water quality and raising awareness for sustainability.  On field trips, students collect data on lakes, streams and groundwater.  They also compete in Envirothon and attend the University of Montana Natural Resource camp.

 

This year, they are raising money for the construction of a greenhouse that will be an incredible contribution to the community. This greenhouse will provide learning opportunities for students of all ages as well as contribute healthy, fresh produce to the school lunch program.

 

The construction of this greenhouse will promote the education of sustainable agriculture within the school and benefit the physical health of the students. Locally grown food will be an essential part of their daily lives, bringing awareness and encouraging healthy eating.

The total cost of the greenhouse will be $50,000.
Richard Atkinson, also known as Older Man Walking, has challenged the FREEFLOW club to raise $25,000.  If they succeed, Richard, and his wife Carol will provide matching funds.

 

The dedicated students of the FREEFLOW club are calling upon their community for support to make their dream a reality.

 

Donations are limited to $500 per person.  With your generosity, they will be one step closer to raising the $25,000 for their share of the greenhouse.

 

Your tax-deductible donation will help cover the cost of building materials and construction.
The Whitefish Community Foundation is handling all donations for this project.
