Charles Schwab volunteers again partnered with Hope Communities at the 3rd and final phase of the Baumgardner Family Community Gardens at the Hidden Brook Apartments. Among many projects taking place this year within the garden, 9 additional garden boxes were added for a total of 30 garden boxes at the site. The ultimate goal during the previous year’s community garden projects were to simply provide raised garden areas for residents, allowing them the opportunity to grow their own fresh organic food.
During the 3rd and final phase of this project, additional garden beds were added along with, trellis’ for both new, and existing beds. Two large, colorful sail shades along with 2 Shademaster Honey Locust trees, 2 Miss Kim Lilac Bushes, and 4 Pink Lemonade Honeysuckle vines were added to this area as well, creating a new, much needed shade area. Two colorful, and cleverly painted trash cans were also added this year. This new area will allow the residents to better utilize the complete area. A colorful meandering walk way now separates the garden bed area, from the new shade area. Three 8’ benches were also constructed.
This garden area is now more than just a set of raised garden beds; rather it is an open and welcoming space that encourages residents to not just sow the seeds of herbs and vegetables, but to sow the seeds of community and creativity.
Metco Landscape graciously donated all landscaping materials necessary to prepare the new garden beds for planting, as well as all trees, bushes vines, and flagstone. Guiding us along the way was Patti Hamilton who thoughtfully donated her Landscape Design talents, as well as Matt Seewald of Palace Construction who lent his general contracting knowledge and ideas to this project. Adam Vogel of Diamond Vogel paints donated all painting materials bringing color and life to the benches and trash cans. Thank you all–we simply could not have done this without you or your kindness.
Thank you Charles Schwab for volunteering your time, talent and energy – and for literally reaching out with your own two hands and making a tangible difference within this community. Hope Communities cannot everyone enough, and we look forward to next year’s project!

Charles Schwab volunteers again partnered with Hope to build 14 additional community garden beds the Baumgardner Family Garden at Hidden Brook Apartments. The goal was to provide families in need with fresh food during the summer months. The gardens not only bring fresh, healthy food to residents, but also a sense of personal pride as residents are responsible for planting, weeding, watering and maintaining their garden box.
Hope could not accomplish projects like the community gardens without the support of the amazing Charles Schwab volunteers, and various donors. Hope is thrilled that Charles Schwab employees donated their valuable time to build these garden boxes, and we were once again proud to work alongside of them!

Hope Communities is pleased to announce that we are once again conducting our annual Treasure Store toy drive for disadvantaged children in our community. The Treasure Store gives parents the opportunity to select Christmas toys for their children who might not otherwise receive a gift this holiday season. We enthusiastically invite you to participate in this heartwarming event.
Hope has asked local businesses to help either through a monetary donation that will be used to purchase toys, or by hosting toy collection boxes. Toy collection boxes have already been placed in corporate offices who are actively encouraging employees to purchase unwrapped gift(s) for children ages 0 to 18 years of age. Hope employees, alongside volunteers from around the area delivered the toy collection boxes to offices during the last week in October. After they are filled, the collection boxes will be picked up December 1st – 4th, and toys will then be sorted, and delivered to the Treasure Store events taking place December 8th, 9th, and 10th.
Last year, generous businesses and employees donated to this worthy cause, brightening Christmas morning for hundreds of children living in Hope Communities, while putting magnificent smiles on the faces of their parents.
If you or your employees wish to participate by making a monetary donation, dropping off a toy, or volunteering to assist with Treasure Store preparations or events, we would be delighted to have you. Please contact Stevie Seewald our Marketing/Event Coordinator at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
