The Waterbury Police Activity League, which serves thousands of children, is hoping to raise over $200,000 to support construction and operation of the innovative “Come Grow With Us” program and to bolster PAL’s endowment to ensure its vitality over the next decade. “Come Grow With Us” is a visionary greenhouse program to be used in PAL’s curriculum development. Contributions will fund construction of an educational greenhouse that abuts PAL’s existing garden plots. The greenhouse will augment the culinary arts program and will enable entrepreneurial activities such as cultivating and selling plants, vegetables and flowers. Participating students will learn from hands-on training and gain experience as interns in the program.
The fundraising event will be held tonight - Tuesday June 14 - at 6 p.m. at The Country Club of Waterbury, 1 Oronoke Road. The donation is $100 per person and includes a cocktail reception and dining stations.
